About Me


To learn every day from the people and places around me


hmm. well, people say that i smile a lot. i like to dream. i don't let others establish limits for me. i love finding creative and resourceful ways to do otherwise impossible things. i strive to do what feels right in the moment. i'm willing to follow my passions wherever they may lead. i try to trust the universe and accept that i am always exactly where i need to be. i redefine the expectations that i have for my life on a daily basis as i learn and discover new things. i occasionally unleash my inner rebel. and you?


where there is passion, you can't go wrong.
