About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To leave a positive mark on this earth.

ABOUT ME

Things that I am:
A dreamer, an artist, a sometimes writer; a thinker, a planner, a sometimes doer; a humanist, a realist, a disappointed idealist; a scholar, a drifter, a blueberry-picker.

PHILOSOPHY

The choices we make in life are who we are, because a person's will is his/her existence. Make good decent humanly choices, and you are a good decent humanly person. Shine in good will, and your life will be the sun.

However, I'd love to learn from you.
