My mission is to learn how to be a better person in a challenged world. There are so many ways to have your journey thwarted. By outside forces, and inside ones. While my efforts for the first part of my life seem to be focused on children and helping them navigate their true potential, I have a theory: They grow up. They become adults. My "rescue mission" is aimed at all people - young and old. It is certainly easier to catch them while they are young, plant the seeds of inspiration, and see how they bloom later on the journey.
I have many pieces to my life - my media company, my bookshop, my children's books, my art, my civic work -- but they all are threads to one tapestry. The final image of tapestry won;t be revealed for years to come, but I know this... I am captivated and inspired by what I see emerging.
