Reading List

My dad teases me, says "Why do you take notes in your books like you're still in school?" I tell him, "Because I am, this is life school."

In case you haven't picked up on it yet, I am wildly passionate about continuous learning. The beginner brain that allows you to absorb information is a huge strength. As we grow it's important to remain humble, to keep searching, and to look at the world anew every day. Reading + researching helps me allow the majesty and awe of the world to enter me.

The books listed here are 'quake' books - they will radically alter your perception of reality, they will challenge everything you believe in. They will encourage growth and healing. They span every genre, from memoir and poetry to social science, neurology, art, spirituality and psychology. These books made me who I am today.

Happy exploring!
