About Me


Launch my business, eat good meals, play hard


Been thinking a lot lately about how everything boils down to a good story. I love stories, particularly in the form of novels, documentaries, or sharing a story of something ridiculous we've encountered on a mundane day. I talk to all kinds of people because I'm into "characters."
