I've never lost my sense of wonder in the pursuit of a balanced
life. Working in video and film taps the creative in me while
volunteering as a crisis and grief counselor, as well as a soccer
coach, furthers my commitment to community and youth advocacy.
Upbeat, positive and fearless in leaping at the spontaneous
detours life has a way of throwing in front of you...
What I’m doing with my life
Embracing every moment...challenging my creativity...making an
