We each have our way of staying sourced in what matters most deeply. For me, my inspiration comes from a number of sources, including musicians, writers, friends, and people in my community who bring me hope. I recently started these page as a way to share some of these sources with those who may be curious or seeking, particularly those conscious leaders who are on a quest to mitigate climate change and secure the well-being of humanity and this beautiful earth.

This page is a work in progress, and will be watered with time. May you find and experience your inner worth and capability as I continue to discover mine through these resources that currently land as my favorites.
