About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to be awesome

ABOUT ME

I'm a would be artist who loves good food, good drink and good company. Myes...I am a bit of a hedonist. I like to laugh and meet new people. I'm a really laid back person who likes to chill out, but also to hit local bars/pubs, theaters, and random parties. Sometimes my sense of humor can be a little...off or politically incorrect but there's never any disrespect. I also knit technicolor socks!!!!

PHILOSOPHY

Guinean philosophy courtesy of my nana: "Life is like a long string around your neck. You can choose to take all the good imperfect moments as nice imperfect beads and at the end of your life have a loooong necklace or, you can wait for the perfect moments and have a long empty string around your neck with very very few diamonds."

That and "Don't shit where you eat"...

One Amazing Thing I've Done

*I had the balls to leave home to travel for a month. I've always been a really REALLY "straight laced" girl...it took me out of my shell! *Attended a conference by Peter Brook, the greatest director (in my book) *Shaved all of my hair off for no reason other than to try it out... *Left Montreal with a plane ticket and no itinerary... *Saw the Callanques in Marseille

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach how to cook and/or bake and how to knit. If you need it, I can help you analyze a play and coach you if you're an actor. I'd really like to learn how to grow a little veggie garden on my fire escape. I also really really want to learn how to cook meals from all over the world.
