He truly enjoys supporting self & community in consciousness raising, compassionate accountability processes, self-compassion meditation, somatic release, intersectional analysis and recommendations towards people’s needs getting met. He is also a friend, a brother, a son, and an uncle that enjoys playing music, running, hanging out with the littles, talking on the phone, climbing things and meditating.
