Moving to New York City by myself at 17 was certainly my bravest moment. I bought a one-way ticket and stayed with a friend of a friend and figured it out along the way.
I grew up drinking eggnog and watching 'It's A Wonderful Life' every Christmas with my family.
I love the simplicity and freedom of running. A pair of shoes, and you are all set to explore new trails.
My dad is an engineer and works on green energy, so I'm very aware of what it takes to keep a modern home running and how we can simplify.
As I kid, I read the 'Little House on the Prairie' series and was sad when I got to the last book.
I play guitar, the ukulele and the piano. I grew up on a mountain in Tennessee, and we had 'The Mountain Opry,' where anyone could just get up on stage to perform. It was just about the soul and heart of music. My upbringing was less about being great and more about just doing what you love. It was always for joy.
