About me

Industry Education
Occupation Teacher, Writer
Location Ithaca, New York, United States
Introduction My goal in life is to be present and open to all it has to offer. For me, every day is an opportunity to become more aware, more compassionate, more patient, more generous, more joyful, more curious, more honest, and more peaceful. I’m an introspective philosopher at heart, but I love to turn my brain off sometimes, feel a weird rhythm in my body, and just start dancing wildly to it. Laughter is the best exercise. I’m a devoted yoga practitioner and teacher. I like cats and think I was one in another life. I eat weird foods most people won’t touch. I’ve learned and taught many kinds of subjects in many different contexts: yoga and meditation in India; dance, photography, writing, and film in the United States; and English in Japan. My curiosity has guided me to experience everything from eating catfood to jumping off a moving train to taking a bucket bath. I think it’s important to let yourself meander in life and discover.
