That the only thing you can ever really control is yourself (if that) and that your highest aspiration every day should be to be kind to everyone you meet – particularly those that need it the most. I believe that the future is sustainable, equitable, and prosperous and will be driven by the rapid adoption of radical innovations at the local level.


Loyal, driven, creative, empowering, thoughtful, gardener, aspiring vegan, avid reader, and super proud grandfather (gasp – when did that happen).
