What brings you joy in life?

Creative self-expression! In addition to my passion for storytelling, I love dancing of all kinds. I’ve studied belly dance, bachata, and Brazilian Zouk among other styles. I also enjoy glass fusing, crocheting, photography, and cross stitching. These art forms allow me to express myself and build connections with other people at the same time. I think life would be a lot less vibrant without artists and storytellers!
