I enjoy getting lost and learning along the way. This has resulted in hiking near sulphur springs in Northern California, dancing in street fairs, and eating with the homeless.

What might we talk about?

We could talk about finding the words you just can't generate when a loved one walks away, why umbrellas are perfectly useless when it's windy, about podcasts, the pros and cons of Spotify and Soundcloud, whether dogs or cats provide more laughs, or how the sun still rises tomorrow.

You'd be surprised by what you're capable of
