I spent a lot of my life hiding how I saw the world and what was important to me. I over-correct sometimes and over share. This might be one of those times. These are a bunch of video and writings that I’ve done in the last 25 years. I put the a few in bold that express some of the things I care most about. I still have a longing to be seen, which is why I’m sharing them with you. Maybe when I grow up, I’ll have less need to both hide and be seen.
