Passion. Every good journey begins with passion. Whether your passion is painting, dance, or cooking, it is exclusively yours. No explanation required. Heck, some people have a passion for swimming with sharks!? I think they're nuts - but I'd bet they've got some great stories!

Life is full of passion. Some passion stays with you throughout your life, while others are new or even fleeting. I imagine a lot of us had passions when we were younger that still hold fond memories, even to this day.

I recall one of my earliest passions began when I was in the 6th grade. For math class we all had graphing calculators that we found had games on them. While others enjoyed playing them - I found an affinity for making them.

It is so fulfilling to create something that brings joy to others.

When word got around that I was turning kids' tools for learning into video game consoles, let's just say it wasn't well received. But I was not about to give up - I just had to innovate.

I decided that if I was able to download similar games from the internet, then why couldn't I distribute mine the same way?

And so, at the age of 12, I learned webpage design and created what would become the second-largest website for calculator games on the internet.

This same essence of passion and unwillingness to back down from a challenge rings true to this day.

In 2010, when I began my journey in corporate real estate planning, I never imagined I'd find passion in my professional life. But like with those calculator games, it too blossomed into something unexpected.

My goal in creating this site is to share my journey, as well as hopefully inspire others to feel empowered in their own passion's journey.
