I write about my experiences of the world from a Buddhist perspective, and am always looking to connect with other creative minds. I have studied Jazz piano as well, and harbor a deep love for music. I would love to be taught about David Brazier's path to becoming the man he is today. I admire what he means for the world, and how he inspires others to do so as well. I aspire to be a unique and open human being like him.
