About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

I'm Jamie. You can call me James, Jimmy or Aunt Jame-ima. I like to ride my bicycle, read, go on adventures, and have deep late-night chats with groggy eyes.

PHILOSOPHY

I'm in the midst of figuring out my philosophy, but it has a lot to do with love, and keeping my heart open in every experience in life. "Nothing, ever, is worth closing your heart over"- Mickey Singer
