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."

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!
