I value authenticity, kindness, compassion and wit. My guiding principles: accept others as they are, be truthful, help when possible, just breathe, maintain a sense of humor, respond don't react.
I am responsible, but try not to take myself too seriously. I laugh. A lot. I laugh at myself. I will laugh at that guy over there. You are fair game as well. I can typically find humor in the mundane and difficult situations.
I appreciate art and all creative endeavors. Self-expression is a beautiful thing and I'm always fascinated by how individuals choose to actualize it and the courage it takes to then share it with others.
I'm extremely open to learning about others' experiences, points of views, cultures and the like. I don't prefer the approach of "us vs. them"...but rather a "we."
I think it's a good rule of thumb to remember that nothing is ever black or white. I prefer the gray. Be adaptable. Maintain malleability.
