About Me

I believe in the ephemeral connections of love that bind all people on this Earth.

My purpose is to help others. This is at the core of my self and informs how I live. It manifests in various ways.

For the past 6 years I have been volunteering and traveling with this purpose.

I have lived in a Buddhist temple in NY and Thailand. I have helped manage a small vegetable farm in Hawaii. I lived in a small village in the Hill Tribes of Thailand. I lived in a spiritual community in Sweden. Helped put on third largest Permaculture Convergence in the world in Northeast United States. I helped connect Israeli and Muslim children in a kibbutz in Israel. I spent one month without my phone only following my intuition.

I believe in love, that is it is the source of all being and we are purely being of love and light if we allow ourselves to.

I'm a deeply spiritual person. My spirituality is born out of a intuitive feeling. I follow that feeling to help other and sometimes heal people. I had a experience of my soul at a young age.

Creo en las conexiones efímeras del amor que unen a todas las personas en esta Tierra.

Mi propósito es ayudar a los demás. Esto está en el centro de mi ser e informa cómo vivo. Se manifiesta de varias maneras.

Durante los últimos 6 años he sido voluntario y viajando con este propósito.

He vivido en un templo budista en Nueva York y Tailandia. He ayudado a administrar una pequeña granja de vegetales en Hawai. Vivía en un pequeño pueblo en las tribus de las colinas de Tailandia. Viví en una comunidad espiritual en Suecia. Ayudó a establecer la tercera convergencia de permacultura más grande del mundo en el noreste de los Estados Unidos. Ayudé a conectar a niños israelíes y musulmanes en un kibutz en Israel. Pasé un mes sin mi teléfono solo siguiendo mi intuición.

Creo en el amor, es decir, es la fuente de todo ser y somos puramente amor y luz si nos lo permitimos.

Soy una persona profundamente espiritual. Mi espiritualidad nace de un sentimiento intuitivo. Sigo ese sentimiento para ayudar a otros y algunas veces a curar personas. Tuve una experiencia de mi alma a una edad temprana.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Each moment of living is filled with such love, power, and beauty.

Teach, Learn, Share

We will vibe off each other and learn many things. This will happen organically unless this was one thing that caught your eye.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Someone who sees you.
A open ear, loving heart, and empathetic smile.
A fellow human who understands that life is learning but also hardship.
A connection to yourself from another heart.
