Growing up in the countryside of rural Georgia, I wanted to learn about the world beyond my own but traveling wasn’t an option at the time. Instead, I read books to give me insight into people’s different ideas, thoughts, experiences, and cultures, and continue to do so today. 

If there’s a book that’s been very influential to you, please email the name to me at, and I’ll add it to my reading list.
