Write… outside of the world of social media

I’d like to spend more time penning/blogging down my thoughts about work and life. And social media feels just a bit uncomfortable at the moment.

Here, I hope to write and bring deeper insight into the work that we do. I find that, in that introspection, I also discover things about myself and why I did what I did.
