I am a lover of the human experience. I seek to create or nurture a world in which self-preservation and the common good are not mutually exclusive, but in fact deeply and inevitably interconnected.
I operate on the principle of Sawubona- Ngikhona, a Zulu greeting which means "I see you, I am here", we bring each other into existence by acknowledging one another and taking the time to see and praise the divinity and miracle of our existence.
I see you and your warrior spirit. I see you and your brokeness. I see you and your beauty. I see you and your struggle. I see all of you, and I hope you know you are already enough as you are, right this very minute.
