We get involved, stay curious, mentor others, and are passionate, compassionate, creative, confident, collaborative, global-minded risk takers.”

I tick all of the above. I keep current on all things happening around me. I love technology and give it a go and even take selfies. I have friends of all ages, from all decades. I get involved. I am mega-curious about everything. I mean everything! I am uber passionate and extremely compassionate. I am creative.

Tick … tick … tick … I am a Perennial.
