  • A Little About Me

    I'm a writer, deep thinker and on a quest to BE PRESENT and BE LOVE. I'm an ex-churchgoer. I've lived in 27 different places in my life. I was once an island dweller and I've been a pioneer in a handful of start-up organizations in the USA, Switzerland, and Honduras. Oh and I should add that I am a recovering people-pleaser. I hope to bring humor and thought-provoking ideas to my readers.
