About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Love unceasingly, learn endlessly

ABOUT ME

I grew up in the central valley of California in a small farming community. Being close to the beautiful High Sierra Mountains I fell in love with anything outdoors...backpacking, camping, hiking, slack lining. Went on to college in southern california where I also learned to love huge cities. Moved to Senegal for 2 years while working for the Peace Corps. Now living and working in San Francisco.

I love learning whether it be through reading or hearing about other people's life experiences. People are so important to me and one of my favorite things is meeting someone new and hearing about their life.
