I do what I do because I love it, but also because it is the greatest privilege to me to tell the stories of others. People can be weird, amusing, compelling and just so fascinating. That is why I am thankful that I get to do this so often. Nothing beats sitting down with someone and showing the world what they got to offer.

I firmly believe that everyone has a story tell. It can be as small as the fact that they tripped going up the stairs coming back from the dinning hall, or as large as their grandpa passing away because he was shot by police.

Story significance can vary, but that doesn’t mean telling the story is any less important. Every story can intrigue someone else in some capacity depending on how I tell it.

Telling the story to the world can show others that they are not alone in the world and that is what is cool: connection.
