I love to travel; read; write; spend time with loved ones; hike; swim; take nature photographs; teach/mentor youth! I adore the water and try to spend as much time as I can in or near it! I was active in musical theatre as a child/teen, and singing will always be very sacred to me. I love world music, as well as most all other genres. I consider myself extremely philosophical and poetic, and I love getting to know diverse types of people.
