It is in our biology to trust what we see with our eyes. This makes living in a carefully edited, overproduced and photoshopped world very dangerous.
Wise words these are, from Brené Brown’s book The Gifts of Imperfection. I strive to make sure any media that I produce or contribute to is a trustworthy source of information and serves a useful purpose. Below you can find links to some of the written work, audio, and video that I have contributed to or been featured in over the past few years. You might also check out my podcast and YouTube Channel as well. Enjoy!
