What inspires me

“Narrative imagining — story — is the fundamental instrument of thought. Rational capacities depend upon it. It is our chief means of looking into the future,

of predicting, of planning, and of explaining.” 

--Mark Turner, cognitive scientist, linguist, and author

My path - past & present

I come from a mother who is an artist and a father who is a technologist. The two of them made me who I am today -- a lifelong pursuer in weaving together the magical human elements of feeling and creating.

I grew up living in many different cities and countries. This gave me a firsthand experience at seeing various political systems, cultures and ways of life. I'm constantly deliberating, celebrating and contending with the duality (and sometimes multiplicity) that is my identity.

Finding meaning, sharing perspectives and relating through the unexpected are the key ingredients that make me tick and give me purpose.
