About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To understand my part in the world.

ABOUT ME

I enjoy meeting new people and exploring new places with, and sharing and hearing interesting stories. I am also a global citizen who loves to travel and meet people from around the world because with every space I explore, and every person I meet, the world becomes a little bit smaller.

PHILOSOPHY

I believe the good conversations that we have with each other will become the building blocks of a truly equitable global society.
