Name one experience you've always wanted to "explore."

It's difficult for me to name just one experience I want to explore, but some things on the top of my list include traveling, understanding the local homeless population, and giving tools and resources to young people to achieve their dreams. In addition, I am ALWAYS up for trying new food and wine and coffees! I am excited to hear your ideas!

What does optimism REALLY mean to you?

I believe optimism is seeing the opportunity in a given situation. Even in the worst situations, there are lessons to be learned and growth to be achieved. Being able to embrace that and not dwelling on the negativity has allowed me to see the beauty that I may not have seen before.


Hajimemashite! There are so many good people doing good things all around us! Immersing myself in various projects helps me understand the world better. I look forward to sharing these experiences and exploring the world with you!
