Plant a new Truffula. Treat it with care....

"But now" says the Once-ler,
"Now that you're here,
the word of the Lorax seems perfectly clear.
UNLESS someone like you
cares a whole awful lot,
nothing is going to get better.
It's not."

Birthday Oct 10  
Languages English, Spanish  
About Me I grew up in the Boston area and have those strong pragmatic New England roots... yet at the same time I enjoy taking the path less travelled.

I want to make a positive impact on the world. I'm driven to constantly make a difference in whatever I do.

For those who enjoy the Myers Briggs personality tests, I'm an INTP. I'm a type 1 on the Enneagram chart. Yes, I enjoy social psychology.

I like to travel to remote areas, though I've done little of that lately, given how much I have been working. In the meantime, I'm enjoying life, loving having two children, and doing fun things like work on Care2 Connect!

Wild Fact About Me I live here. Really.
My Philosophy you are what you think about
What Gives Me Hope everything always works out for the best in the end... if you want it to... and I do.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by tough one... hmmm, I guess I'd force everyone to become a lifelong member of Care2 ;)
What/who changed my life and why I'd have to say my parents. Combined, they taught me the importance of hard work, high standards, compassion for those less fortunate, love, responsibility, respect for the natural world and integrity. I am incredibly fortunate to have such two amazing role models.
