Life Lesson
I have a friend that often says, “live in a way that when you walk into a room you say, ‘there you are’ not ‘here I am’. Living life with an others focused, outward posture brings life to others and to yourself.

Favorite Moment
Life has been too full to pick one…Watching the sunset in Santorini, going to a soccer match in Estadio Olimpico in Rome, biking a coastal trail in Kauai, achieving an undefeated JV season with a incredible group of kids, sharing deep life conversations fire side, catching a dorado in Cancun…. My favorite life moments seem to be with people that I care deeply about outside in nature.
