“I believe the world needs as much connection between people as possible. I’m out here to connect with as many people as I can – and to let people know it’s ok to connect with each other. To let them know that it’s ok to be everything they are and want to be – in all the complexities and confusions that make life what it is: one big, crazy, beautiful messy love storm.”
