About Me

CURRENT MISSION

gratitude and reflection

ABOUT ME

I grew up in Detroit, Michigan and love my home, but I also love to live abroad, so my heart is usually in at least two places at one time.

Living abroad was originally going to be one year, that was more than seven years ago and there's no end in sight. To me, it's all about absorbing the best from each place I go and putting it all together to be a better human being.

PHILOSOPHY

Focus on what you can control.
