I’ve packed a lot of living into my twenty-some-odd years. I’ve been an EMT, a musician, an engineer, a machinist. I’ve ran a shirtless 5k in a snowstorm, I’ve directed Sweeney Todd, I’ve moved across the country on a motorcycle. The one constant through all of it is that I really, truly care, about the world and the people in it. I became an EMT to learn to help those around me, a musician to make art. I became an engineer to make things objectively better and a machinist to manifest that vision. I tend not to have an off switch: once I’m turned on to something, I’m hooked, and I’ll pursue it passionately. I’ve combined this dogged determination with a healthy disregard for the concept of failure, and it’s taught me a great many lessons along the way. One thing’s certain: I don’t always have good answers, but I know a lot of good questions.
