As many of you already know, I've decided to use my background in Video, Journalism, and Art to start a nonprofit. It will provide multimedia content for humanitarian grassroots organizations, starting first locally then expanding to third world countries.
I've already been doing some work with the San Marcos community but it's time I invested in video equipment that will produce better quality content. This fall semester I will also be serving and studying in Puerto Rico where I will definitely be putting the new equipment to use.
It's really exciting to know where I am called to serve! I look forward to sharing content and progress with you guys as I build this nonprofit around my love for the community.

Thank you guys for all the support already. I've received so much encouragement along the way and it means so much!!!
I want to experience the world through travel and to leave the places and people I visit better than I found them.
I want a simple life with simple purpose and to stay away from actions and lifestyles that are not sustainable for my community, environment, or myself. I want to eliminate daily stresses and grow into a wholesome love that I feel and share and follow continuously.
I want to nurture and be nurtured, to contribute wherever I am. To know I am following the Creator's will, and to therefore do no harm. I want to clear my mind and soul, to cleanse them and value the peace that comes with letting go of my other.
I want to value every soul equally and come to fully know Love.
