If you could tell the world one thing, what would it be?

Open your ears and hearts. IF you listen hard enough, at the foundation of our beings we all want and needs the same things in life. Use those foundations to tie us together and preserve our earth and everyone/thing that lives on it.

Is there something you're working on that you'd like to tell our community about? We love a good story.

I wish I could tell you the best stuff im most excited about, but Im not the only one involved and I have to respect the launch procedure. But generally I like the work Im doing with other non-profits besides my own in 2021 and moving forward. Its an exciting year for ROI(Return on Investments) on my favorite environmental and social justice investments.
