Hi,

Welcome to my little piece of the internet. My hope is that when you leave, you will have begun to wonder about something that you've never even thought about before.

happy place/s

In 2002, 16 years ago, I ran along the river road and got a runner's high and thought to myself, this is my happy place.

In 2003, 15 years ago, I sat on a porch overlooking the lush woods atop Pine Mountain in an old forestry camp in the Appalachain mountains of Kentucky and I thought to myself, this is my happy place. 

In 2004, 14 years ago, I sat on a beach gazing out into the ocean every day of an entire summer. For the first time I had a car of my own to drive wherever I wanted and I thought to myself, this is my happy place. 

In 2006, 12 years ago, I boarded a plane and got my first passport stamp, my understanding of poverty has never been the same. I traveled to broaden the horizons of my mind to better understand the differences and nuances of cultures around the world. Every time I board a plane, this is my happy place.

In 2008, 10 years ago, I wielded a hammer for Habitat and learned how to build a house and I thought to myself, this is my happy place.

I spent the past 10 years of my life really learning, experimenting, taking chances, figuring out who I am and what I want to do with my life. When I am doing the things that make me happy, that's when I am exactly where I am supposed to be. 

Today I live on Kauai, where all of those happy places are all rolled up into one perfect island.
