Focusing on me, my work, and creating my own truth. A craving of a simplistic life has rooted itself powerfully within me, and the growing appeal to investing in the places where an introvert can relax in mind, body and soul and….create, sounds like my kind of nirvana.



“I learned this, at least, by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.” 
 Henry David Thoreau
