    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    Nearly 5 years ago, I left a life of stability and found a new wealth in life— diverse experiences and friendships and the perspective they bring. I yearn to keep expanding my view of this world (and the people, cultures, trades, and natural wonders it is home to) so that I may be mindful of my impact and interaction with it, and live harmoniously.

    I was previously a Professor of Dance (Hip Hop styles) at a University in Utah, USA. I have since found myself learning new trades in the following places, and am eternally grateful for each landscape, lesson, and person I encountered along the way:

    Colorado, USA (permaculture, arts community, hospitality, bartending),
    California, USA (sustainable living/farming, exotic animal care, tours, record sales, childcare),
    Alaska, USA (hiking/adventure tours, gold panning, jewelry-making, baking/cooking),
    China (martial arts),
    Vietnam (fishing/boat/kayak tours, writing/advertising),
    Thailand (backpacking).

    My one true love is Art, in any form. Whether it come from a person, a culture, a skilled trade, or nature... I see it as the key to connection and growth.

    It would be an honor to connect with (and learn from) you by contributing to your projects and exploring the area and manner in which you live. I will dive into them with an open mind and tremendous passion.
