A nature nerd who loves to learn as much as I can about all of the other life forms on earth. I grew up in a restaurant family and love to share good food with friends and family. I am in heaven playing soccer everywhere I go.
People looking beyond themselves to help others and to make the world a better place. Random acts of kindness.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
Make healthcare affordable to everyone and get money out of politics. ok, maybe I'd have to go for a higher office like the U.S. Senate. ;)
What/who changed my life and why
Dr. E.O. Wilson and his book "The Diversity of Life" because it is from this book that I learned about the alarming rate that we are losing animal and plant species and primarily from human related causes. Many of these species we know nothing about. Each species is so intricately designed and intertwined with other life forms on earth. Our callous disregard for other life forms on earth (simply because we fail to appreciate them as a value to humankind) is a moral tragedy. The quieting of one bird's song, the extinguishing of one flower's bloom, is stealing from the greatest wealth that can supply hope, laughter, and medicine for our children and it is tearing down the basic structural support for all life forms that exist with us today and that will come after us.
