I enjoy living simply and close to nature. I love music, dance and all of the expressive arts, and am fortunate to get to work with elders, children and animals. A while back, I started an inter-generational bilingual community organization that empowers kids to reclaim their neighborhoods, with a focus on ecology, the creative arts, and community service. It's called Growing a Village/Cultivando un Pueblo. I have a daily meditation practice, enjoy a balance of solitude and community in my life, and am currently learning to swing dance with my partner John.
