Name your favorite season of the year and why.
Indian summer, because I experience nature at its zenith both in a physical and metaphorical environment. It is the time when the sun burns brightest before we begin the descent into hibernation and darkness.
What is it about the sea that draws you to it?
It is where I experience the deepest state of connection to my humanity and my place on the planet. The ocean has taught me the meaning of strength, power, and flexibility. I am enraptured by everything that is the sea.
What motivates you to get out of bed each morning?
My mission to embody the courage, compassionate, respect, and vulnerability I desire to see in the world.
