About Me

CURRENT MISSION

On the Path back to the Source, discovering ways to serve others using the gifts & talents that I've been given to share.

ABOUT ME

Adventurer, Risk Taker, Artist. I'm fun, outgoing, adventurous, drama free and optimistic with lots of passion for life. I'm also a vegetarian (I don't mind if you're not), love to cook with herbs and spices. Love music, art and movies. Recently studied Ayurveda with my teacher in FL. Last summer I began playing the Oud aka middle-eastern lute, and this year attended the annual Middle-East Music Camp in Mendocino to study the instrument.

I am unique, creative, very open-minded and I like a to hang out with like-minded people who can make me laugh and are really comfortable with just being themselves. People with a strong sense of self identity.
