I grew up in the greater Los Angeles area, but being able to travel and meet so many wonderful souls has been one of my greatest gifts in this life. I firmly believe there is something you can apply to yourself through everyone you meet, for better or worse. I’ve viewed writing and empathy as my¬†gift to help others that I have met on my journey so far. If there’s anything that sums up what I have learned…it’s that only with an open mind and a pure heart, will you shine most for someone that needs you.
