My NativeAdVantage:


I live, I move, I work, I breathe, I see, I think, I write, I feel, I am. I cannot fairly say what I am or am not.

What do I do best?

Read and caffeinate… If I could make a living just doing those two things I would be completely content. I set my alarm to 5am some days just to spend a few hours reading and drinking mate in the morning.

What makes me the best version of myself?

Yoga. When I start my day doing yoga, I feel more connected to my true self, more happy and energized throughout the day. Once I have done my yoga I’m ready for my day.

What are my aspirations?

I just want to be happy and I want to make other people happier too. I think we get so stuck on specific goals sometimes that we develop tunnel vision and cannot see whether they are increasing or decreasing our quality of life.

My Biggest Success?

I don’t know if I would call it a “success,” but completing my 200 hour yoga teacher training certification. It was just the first step but it’s something I am very proud of and something that I feel has put me on the path I am supposed to be on. My successes follow this, now that I can/do teach yoga I consider it a success to help someone feel better through yoga.

My most challenging moment

I’m going through this right now. I am on the Camino De Santiago, writing this in Burgos which is about 300km in (out of almost 800km total). I have been back of forth about completing the Camino for the last 12 days since I started, I have been feeling all sorts of unpleasant sensations both physical and emotional that I haven’t been able to make sense of. I think bigger picture of what is happening in me is starting to crystallize though and I’m pushing through, walking one more day at a time.

My motto?

I think the absolute bare minimum I can do with my life is to leave others better than I found them. This can be making them smile or laugh, sharing physical contact like a long hug, or going deeper than that and delving into whatever psycho/emotional issues they are dealing with. We all have some sort of war going on in our heads.

My favorite people?

I have so many literary characters that inspires me. Siddhartha, Jack Kerouac, Alexander Supertramp (Chris McCandless), Santiago from the Alchemist and more. My parents of course too, they are very different, but they give me to really valuable (often contrasting) perspectives and so much support. I don’t think I would be doing what I am now in Spain without their blessings.

My favorite places?

I’m currently trekking across Spain and my heart is pulling me to India. But, throughout all this I am just appreciating more and more when I have been living the last 3 years in Hermosa Beach California. I have my vegan restaurants there, my yoga studio, my spots on the beach, my friends, family and pug. There more I am away the more things I miss about that place.

My favorite objects?

My books. They are maybe the one thing I am possessive over. I love having my library of completed books. I like looking at them and occasionally re reading them. I like to loan them out to friends, I try to spread the knowledge, but I always get a little separation anxiety (I rarely get them back). My bicycle too, I have a fun little road bike I love to ride up and down the strand in LA.

My current passion?

Writing maybe. It’s something I’m still new to. I’m trying to write more, but I don’t consider myself a writer. My writings aren’t things I feel like I create. Sometimes I can tap into the truth of a situation, thought, feeling I have been experiencing and then the writing just makes itself. I’m more of a scribe.
