  • Hosting unusual social events (went viral)

  • Applied psychology

  • Intuitive bodywork

  • Vibes I like

    • abstract and technical yet playful and silly (kiki x bouba). Intuition. Holistic curiosity.

    • “taking heavy things lightly”, “Here’s something we usually avoid. Let’s head straight for it.”

  • Communicating well

  • Writing succinctly

  • Intentional parenting

  • Red meat
