About Me

ABOUT ME

I currently live in Daegu, South Korea as an EPIK teacher!

PHILOSOPHY

"In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west; people create distinctions out of their own minds and then believe them to be true."

"Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it."

Interests

I am a huge fan of DIY craft projects, and am mesmerized by recycled crafts. I absolutely love tea, trying new food, watching documentaries, going to music festivals, learning, and adventuring into the unknown. I also enjoy outdoor activities such as ice climbing, hiking, wakeboarding, etc. even though i'm not very good at them!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I think that we often forget how lucky we are, and that sometimes the most mundane things can be the most beautiful. I think the fact that i have met some of the most wonderful people has and will continually leave me awestruck on a daily basis.

Teach, Learn, Share

ignorance stems from a lack of understanding. I believe that we often forget to look at others viewpoints and are quick to judge others without a single thought as to why people do the things that they do. if we all take the time to understand, the more tolerance and acceptance we will create.

as a friend once said, "listening is about the most generous thing a person can do."
