I've spent 17 weeks over 15 years volunteering with Amor Ministries to build homes in Mexico. Homes that allow families to stay together.
Communities establish faith, allow us to trust, and create meaning; the ingredients for creating and protecting hope.
My role as a participant and then a site leader has shaped my worldview and perspective on the essential ingredients of communities, regardless of where they are in the world.
A DESIGNER AT HEART
I often push the limits of possibility through the process of design and creation. By not fearing failure, I learn to be vulnerable and take risks.
Communities that foster artisan makers are vibrant.
For me, artisanship is both a form of coming alive and a function of staying alive. I cook, I carve, I cut & paste, and I click over and over again.
TOGETHER WE THRIVE
I spent 13 days surviving the backcountry of the Adirondack Mountains in New York state during my final year of secondary school.
Communities that share in tough times are resilient.
The expedition shaped how I view my place on a team and began the development of my expeditionary mindset; multi-functional, curious, and resourceful.
WANDERING BUT NOT LOST
I seek adventure to find who I am when it really matters. I climb mountains, I swim in open waters, and I've jumped out of airplanes.
Communities need wanderers that seek adventure and return stronger.
Nothing is permanent in life and we all find our way and make meaning from what we find. The journey of life is the destination.
The work that I have done professionally embodies the principles and values I hold close to my heart. I am an artist.
