I really seek out meaning and novelty in everything I do - so I like hanging out with people who are always thinking of new ideas and projects.
I'm very focused on trying to be a better person, and really trying to improve our world in a big way - from daily interactions to my long-term goals.
I'm pretty ambitious, but I think I'm still grounded.
That said, it pains me that our society doesn't give everyone such opportunities - I've had such luck and privilege to get here, so I also spend my free time thinking about how we can make a better society for everyone to live their dreams - actionably and in our time.
