I believe in a purpose-driven life. For most of my life, such a statement would have been obvious intellectually, but absent from my conscious direction. After having spent many years untethered and muddy, I believe my purpose, or the beginning of my journey towards a purpose-driven life, is to connect; to live transparently and as a bridge and a mirror; a conduit for understanding. I wish to empower others by connecting that which we take in to that which gives meaning, understanding, and inspiration. I wish to be a bridge through transparency.
