What is your personal mission statement?

To understand the world. 

What are you most passionate about?

The Universe. A few examples: film, acting, music, uninterested love, suffering, the health of the Earth and its inhabitants, and liberation of the unconsciousness.

Why did you choose to study at Naropa?

I felt an urge to go back to school and study music, acting, and/or environmental studies, and I knew I couldn't go back to a conventional university.

What qualities do you most value in your friends?

Trust, lightheartedness, awareness of others and self, honesty, and cariño.

What makes you smile at Naropa?

Nothing if I am feeling miserable and/or critical, otherwise, everything makes me smile.

How have you changed since coming to Naropa?

I have become a little cleaner inside and out, a little more independent, a little more dependent, and other characteristics that are unnameable. 

How would you like to make a difference in the world?

I'd like to bring peace wherever I go. However, I must be this peace first.
