      Outside of development, I like to practice yoga and acrobatics, all things flow arts, build communities, look at rocks, bicycle, and make the world a better place. I believe one of the best things you can do is keep your body in motion. Generally speaking, I always have my eyes open to opportunities for personal growth.
