Hi and thanks for stopping by!
My friends and I work out of a wellness center.
I love my work, which includes teaching qi gong, yoga and energy work including Reiki.
I've studied karate in London, taiko drumming in Tokyo and tai qi in Manhattan; ridden an elephant in Thailand, and door to door canvassing in the Philippines.
I've driven from Maryland across to Seattle, stopping to ride a grain elevator in Oklahoma along the way.
In all those experiences the most important thing has been the connections between those I love and me.
People fascinate me, I like to hear their stories.
First meet -- something brief and no pressure. Like coffee and an outdoor festival or bicycling.
If we get along, see if we can build a friendship. My two previous long term relationships started off as friendships.
