I'm a color outside the lines kind of person. An artist, singer, and gardener by passion and an educator and activist by calling. Relationships are central to my life. With friends, family and neighbors, I try to live my life in a connected way. My work is about creating networks and communities, temporary or long-term, of people seeking to make positive change in the world.
I'm also very goofy when circumstances are right - just ask my nieces and nephews. I love to be silly, talk in funny voices, have paper airplane battles, and generally laugh at how ridiculous life can be.
I really enjoy food - growing it, cooking it, and experimenting with new recipes. I bring as much passion to the kitchen as I do to my work.
Whenever I can, I get outdoors - hiking, kayaking, swimming, gardening, or just a walk around the nearest pond or park. While I enjoy the community feel of living in a city neighborhood, getting out into more rural and wild spaces is necessary for my general sanity. Any place with less people than wildlife will do. Even if the "wild space" is a human made sanctuary for birds or other animals, there is something about looking up to see something untame wander by that pulls me up short and brings out wonder and joy.
I am looking to meet someone who can be an intimate friend, lover and partner. A companion and fellow traveler who will explore the world with me and also cuddle up on the couch to relax.
