Transplanted from Hawaii, I've come full circle to heart and soul of what connects us - "talking "'story'!" Embracing this cliché has driven the bread and butter of my work and being okay to keep growing and dreaming and working with fellow creatives to "make stories come alive" that is meaningful and that celebrates our common humanity. I hope to dare more and to press into building bridges through storytelling, so our world can understand each other a bit more and transform one step at a time. I remember racial justice advocate sharing, "bridges, for better or worse, will be walked and stepped upon." Let's make stories that bridge us together!
