i am in chronic pursuit of who i am and the way the world works.

i don’t believe in labels, but i’m grateful they exist

because they’ve helped me get to where i am today.

so, in this space designated to utilize labels,

such as “writer,” “author,” or “thinker,”

i cannot.

i believe that it is unfair to reduce ourselves to titles,

to words that don’t tell the whole story

bringing me to what i’m interested in:

the ever-evolving story of our lives.
