I am a Sephardic Jewish guy in my mid-twenties. I blog under the pseudonym Rimonim Pardes (pronounced ree-moh-NEEM par-DES, in case you’re wondering). I am transgender; I transitioned in my late teens/early twenties. I live in the American Southwest. I am in grad school for mental health counseling. I am married to my soulmate, who occasionally blogs here under the name Alma. I live in a funky old house with Alma, a good friend, and two dogs (pictured). I’m a vegetarian. I have 6 tattoos and counting. My interests include mysticism, music, and good beer.

I love hearing from readers and bloggers, so please feel free to contact me for any reason. Email me at mantodayblog@gmail.com or contact me anonymously.
