My Inspiration

“Adventure is worthwhile.”
— Aesop

In an attempt to maintain a sense of childhood curiosity and sense of wonder, I find myself seeking out adventure. Living each day and opportunity as an adventure creates a drive and passion that I've learned to crave. I invite you to join me in the adventure.
