Passionate Story-teller and story-listener

I believe that relationships are the most important thing in this life and story-telling is how we cultivate these relationships. In order to get the most out of these stories we must be 100% vulnerable with the people we interact with and that is my goal as a writer.

Fun Facts:

· This quote from Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard describes me a little too well: “I’ve always thought of myself as an 80 percenter. I like to throw myself passionately into a sport or activity until I reach about an 80 percent proficiency level. To go beyond that requires an obsession that doesn’t appeal to me. Once I reach 80 percent level I like to go off and do something totally different.”

· Guilty of loving list articles about “__________ (insert blank number) of things you need to do before __________ (Insert blank date/time/age/etc.)

· Sucker for a great motivational speech or hype-video montage
