Welcome to my Site!
I don’t know why you’re visiting but I sure am glad that you did!
Lemme tell you about my life.
Back in 2001, as The World Trade Centers crumbled, I sought out one thing to make me feel better: a hug.
That embrace...that interaction...that bit of human connection broke though the anguish and tension of the moment and made me feel better..just for a moment.
Right then, I made it my goal to to do what I could repair the fabric of humanity by simply reaching out to embrace strangers.
It hasn't been easy - but I've evolved a lot since '01 and can now proudly display a map of all the places where I have been/hugged or been contacted from since then.
With 50 states and almost as many countries ticked off- this map isn’t an egotistical “Hug-&-Tell” prop for me- it is a testament to what one raw idea can lead to because each map marker is representative of a human...“stitch” in the fabric of humanity.
While building this map hasn’t been easy - nothing I’ve ever attempted has been as fulfilling.
So again, welcome to my site - poke around and read some stories or check out some pictures but more than anything: Be inspired.
Hugs and High5s
