Favorite quote

"'Hope is a discipline.' ... It’s not like a fuzzy feeling. Like, you have to actually put in energy, time, and you have to be clear-eyed, and you have to hold fast to having a vision. It’s a hard thing to maintain. But it matters to have it, to believe that it’s possible to change the world."

Where I'm Finding Inspiration

These days I'm finding most of my inspiration laying awake in the middle of night racking my brain with all the ideas I have. I often enjoy working and reflecting late at night because it's when the world around me feels most still. I also find lots of inspiration on the family walks I take through my neighborhood in the evenings after a long day.

What I Do For Fun, Rest, and Renewal

I'm a wine enthusiast; my wife and I love traveling to new vineyards and learning new things. I love traveling to new and familiar destinations, soaking up different cultures and expanding my horizons. And I find renewal at the beach as I listen to the waves and curl up with a great book.
