Often we focus on "What do you do?" rather than "What makes you... you?" On my show, I want to do both. Our society has proven to be moving away from relationships, and moving toward individualism, and arguing statistics. So, my aim is to connect interesting people in an intentional way. When you listen to my interviews, you'll come away knowing someone as a fellow human being who happens to also be doing incredible things!
