I am an inherent contradiction. I value simplicity; yet I am drawn to complex people/problems. I am deeply introspective; yet determinedly childlike.

+Connecting with people on their level
+Creating the perfect mix CD
+Giving awesome gifts (just saying...)

The six things I could never do without
Nature (sunshine, ocean views, sand between my toes, a clear night
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whether or not I should give this online thing a try =P. That and,
how to leave the world just a little better off than I found it.
