I am a renaissance woman who loves nature, the arts, yoga, recycling, cooking, and sustainability. Dance is an important part of my life, as are music and improvisation. I am an American citizen studying in France at the moment and am seeking activities to deepen my knowledge about the arts as well as permaculture and beekeeping. I speak English, Spanish, Portuguese and French. I have a great ability to put things in order where there is disorder. Given that I was born in New York City, I am skilled at taking public transportation and I have never had a driver's license. I try to see the positive side of every situation.
