Tell us a little about yourself!
Hello! In a non-pandemic world, I tour in the music industry as a crew member for bands, working in the dressing room department.
In this pandemic world, I am home! All work for the year has either already been canceled or is leaning that way. But you know what, as I write this to you...I am alive, breathing, living with the man that I love, finding deep joy in my new bread making passion, engaging with the outdoor cats I inherited from my neighbor when he passed away last year, taking walks around the neighborhood with my parents each morning, and howling outside with my neighbors each night at 8pm.
Living. I am living!
Tell us about your #MakeWaves project.While home, my partner and I have been reading a book a day to kids, posting the video on our blog, WanderlustMoonDuo.com. We started this after hearing that some of our parent friends just simply needed a moment to breathe, now that their kids were home all day. With our reading, we hope to give them that moment by having someone else read to their kids! And have their kids see someone outside of their home that they may know or can connect with! So with that, I would like to buy kids books from a local Nashville author and give them to kids who could really use and book and a smile!
Who inspired you?
Kids! The children of my community. Recently, a tornado came through Nashville.
I know a book may not seem like a lot but maybe it could mean a smile to a child who lost everything in the tornado and is now being effected by COVID-19.
My partner and I have been dreaming about ways to bring a little more joy to the world. How to always be a smiling face when someone needs to see one. I simply want to see the world smile. Bring joy. And for a moment, let people rest in the knowing that they are loved, seen, and valued.
