He’s always been drawn to healthcare, and he learned the value of compassion from his mother, who is a nurse.

“Of the five elements, I would choose air. Air tends to be connected to the mind, wisdom, and spirits of the soul. My mind and conscious tends to be more aloof and I find myself daydreaming frequently. I am entertained by fictional books, whether it be fantasy or science fiction. Meditation helps ground me in reality. Otherwise, I tend to let life “blow” me around rather than controlling my own journey.”
“Born as a Libra, I possess many of the characteristics typically associated with the sign. I am cooperative, diplomatic, fair-minded, and peaceful. I love harmony, gentleness, sharing with others, and the outdoors. The traits I am most happy to see reflected in others are kindness and empathy. I like to keep the peace and avoid conflict, sometimes to a fault. I dislike violence, injustice, loudmouths, and conformity. Libra is an air sign, providing me with strong intellect and a keen mind. I would consider my tendency to avoid confrontations as a weakness, along with indecisiveness and a vulnerability to self-pity.”

If you could have dinner with any three people, dead or alive, who would they be and what would you talk about? Where and what would you be eating?
in the woods with no cell service or contact with the outside world. What we’re eating is not important (although I am partial to a mean buffalo chicken dip). We play Dungeons and Dragons for 5 hours straight… minimum.”
