About me

Occupation Office Manager
Location Berkeley, CA, United States
Introduction I've completed my Masters in 2009 from SFSU's Women and Gender Studies Department, looking to how boundaries of identity are being ruptured and reinforced by intersexed web community users. I've created a youtube channel where I speak about my project and interact with all of those whom my project focused on. (see "my webpage" link to the left). I am also working with the most phenomenal company I have ever encountered. Cafe Gratitude is a school of transformation disguised as a group of restaurants. I support and oversee the administration/offices and actively create and co-create a safe, powerful and transformational core to Cafe Gratitude.

You forgot your mom's birthday! What can you make out of super glue and olive pits?

Shave each olive pit down into a sharpened stick and insert one into another until it makes up a grid-like structure, put it in some soil in a planter and offer to grow a vine up it.
