Welcome to my hub on the interwebs!
A little about my background: I was born in Miami, raised in the NYC metro area of northern New Jersey, and have lived just up the road from our nation's capital in Baltimore for the past decade. I enjoy spending quality time with my husband, Joel, and trying to tame our unintentionally calamitous cat, Loki. I don't remember learning how to read - I just know that I have always had a voracious appetite for the written (and spoken) word.
I have a lifelong love for learning, and pretty much married myself to language study and music performance from a very early age. I speak French as a second language and have studied many others, primarily in the Indo-European language family, such as German and the constructed language Esperanto. I play keyboard and woodwind instruments, mainly piano and saxophone; but I have been known to sing my heart out at home and in church.
I have always loved Nature, I have a complicated history with God, and a holistic view of the intersections of religion and science. I am a Uvangelist sharing Unitarian Universalism with all. A lay leader for many years, I most recently completed a term as Board Secretary for my UU congregation and helped to revitalize our Adult Religious Education Committee.
I am an ENFP according to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, with strong 'I' tendencies. After a decade working for symphony orchestras and breathing classical music, I have been working for a progressive religious institution in Washington, DC. for the past few years. I am hoping that the substantial commute between Baltimore and DC will continue to provide the focused time I need to do more reading, writing, and meditating on life. Besides, I love riding trains!
You can find me around the web mostly as UUXMNR, but also as ExPluribusUnum (EPU) and lingvamanto.
