Dani(elle) Phoenix. Wife, Mom, Editor, Misc Project Doer, Producer.
Dani is an activated Dreemer! Recently turned 30, she has a colorful story of adventures she’s explored and projects she has established. With a determined mind and optimistically resourceful approach she has spearheaded and collaborated on a list of accomplishments such as: co-found an alternative fuel (veggie oil) product business, travelled the US in a veggie powered school bus, established and run an educational non-profit for sustainability (www.DreemReality.org), created a magical kitchen at the 2011 National Rainbow Gathering, hitch hiked/backpacked Europe, married her wife Melinda, married her wife again and new husband Jonathan, and so on.
Though attaining a bachelors degree from Texas A&M University in Psychology, her money making goals reside more in heart pursuits than the “career” world. Presently, she is studying American Sign Language and Deaf Studies, finding an innate connection with the language and unique Deaf community. With the new triad marriage and babies on the way, “Looks Like Love To Me” has become the primary creative and social-movement pursuit in her life. She plays roles behind the scene such as website creation, filming, editing, video cataloging, and producing.
Other than that, she thoroughly enjoys working the garden, breathing fresh air, stretching/yoga, and strumming on guitar while creating songs with conscious messages and dreaming of a future on an intentional community!
