“A calling to higher things, but grounded and enriched with an appreciation for the ordinary moments in life.”

-J.Debold

A friend and mentor once used these words to describe me, and to this day I am honored and humbled by such an eloquent sentiment. I believe in making the world, or at least my part of it, a better place than I found it. The purpose of this website is to house resources and topics that are of interest to me, that could provide value or insight to you.

In the past, friends and family expressed interest in my hobbies and suggested I create my own blog. Initially I couldn’t even grapple with the concept — why should there be a website about me and my ideas when there are thousands of others? But that’s where change and progress begin: within ourselves, extending into our circles and networks. So, rooted in making the world a better place, this website will continue to evolve with feedback from you. I hope you enjoy keeping up with the latest!
