Three years ago, I moved with my partner from California to Florida to help care of her mother who now lives with us. It has been a decision that has been both good and bad for me.

I think when you have lived in one place for so long, it’s a little harder to uproot yourself unless you are miserable with where you have been living.




Walking the line between tradition and breaking tradition. Exploring big ideas with small words.
