Lately, I have been thinking about human innovation and the power we have to create. We are always looking for new ways to experience life in a constantly shifting environment. We are looking to solve problems, cure ailments and maybe even fix mistakes from the solutions before us. Communication forms the base for love. As a journalist and an entrepreneur, my spirit for adventure and my dedication to truth intersects at love. It is love that is proven to oil the gears of the world’s greatest innovators. It begs the question, what do you love? May your ideas be timeless, your dreams be endless, and your love be limitless.
