Startups, running, and robotics are my big buckets. When I was 12 I started working as a referee at a local paintball field and mowing lawns. For the past 22 years I have been skill-building around my passions + furiously exploring this life for experiences.
Exploration. Redirect. Exemplify. These three phases are, by my own definition, my process for how I go about my work, the world, and my life.
We seek to understanding ourselves, the world, and ourselves within the world. Our perspective of that understanding shapes us continuously.
Happiness is a fleeting moment - not years, days, or states-of-mind - we are capable of experiencing multiple moments of happiness close together, alas they are moments.
Teaching for three years on an emergency license at Penn High School after my masters was the calling that, upon reflection, would enable me to coach my high school robotics team. The gift that program gave me of focus and direction I saw playout already in the years following. My drive was to lean into that gift I was given through expanding the opportunity to more people and deepen the impact the program has on the community.
