"Sometimes I lose faith in humanity.
Yet I keep finding hope in an unlikely part of my life: when I get people to dance. Having emceed various events and led dances for over a decade, I have learned something fascinating. No matter what pretenses people have, once I get them to dance or laugh, they forget themselves and connect to their inner child.
In those moments, I truly see that person on the inside, their soul baring it's vulnerability and strength. I can empathize with their life story and it's the most sublime feeling.
So in the past year, I started We R Human to find and recreate more of these moments of connection. And much like our ancestors did, I'm discovering that the answer to much of humanity's malaise lies in sustainable communities that play, reflect, dance and learn together.
My mission now is to bring people together one dance step at a time. Won't you join me?"
