About Me

art, music, nature, food, fun and new friends all over the would.

orginally from Los Angeles area, California, United States. Traveling all over.

Grounding my mind, body, & spirit with mama earth. constantly enchanted, repulsed and overwhelmed by the variability and complexities of life and existence.

I engage my energy with much intention and mindfulness. I'm in love with the way trees sway, the way rain invigorates the ground, the way the sun awakens the earth, the way mama moon always helps me find my way, the way the stars age, the way the wind dances. and the serenity and chaos of streams, rivers, and oceans.

i run an on & off underground anti-capitalist/for friends/small business/soul kitchen/syrup business/natural care products. I love food, cooking, music & good vibes, so i merged them all together to create something extraordinary.

PHILOSOPHY

live your life unconcerned with peoples' perceptions of you, because you only have one lifetime experience in this body, and you lose ownership over it if you are too wrapped up with other ppls' opinions of your livelihood.

..alternatively, you can intentionally skew ppls' perceptions of you. why not have a little fun if people are going to judge you any way? ;)

i like having fun, i like being barefoot, connecting with the earth, and i like deeper conversations.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
