So... it all began in Grad School - there were a few of us sitting around day dreaming about creating an institute. We were kind of specific, like we all wanted to travel at least three months of the year and so on. Now, its a few years later. I find myself at a turning point in my life. I make a bold move. I leave my job and buy a motorcycle and try to collect my thoughts while emptying my mind. My boyfriend is supportive. Summer ends and a friend and I start a studio gallery. We create art. We create a blog. I become inspired with a clarity I haven't experienced in months. I need to start a non profit. I need to create the institute. If I build it they will come. This is my vision.
