Hello! It’s nice to see you.

I’m on a mission to encourage and empower people. It’s my goal to apply my background in psychology, technical communication, user experience analysis, fitness coaching, music and equestrian interests, and my own ongoing Aikido training to encourage and support people, especially beginners.
