Have you ever read something so beautiful, so perfect and earth-shaking that your perception of the world changed?
That's what I want to do with my life. I want to create written truth so splendid that it moves you to action, changes the course of history and ignites the imagination.
To that end, I need to ask questions and learn everything I can. We're only here for so long, so we might as well make the most of it.
I want to leave this life with some satisfaction that I found out all I could about it, and that I lived to the fullest extent possible.
Some of the best moments of my life have been when I was in a control room at the several news stations I've worked at election night, the night of extreme severe weather or the day after a momentous event.
The knowledge that I was doing something that truly made a difference in peoples' lives is a feeling that is incredibly hard to replicate in daily life.
But that's what I want most out of life; to know that what I create is meaningful, worthwhile and will hopefully move you.
