Serendipity: make happy discoveries through active exploration, reflexive optimism, and pursuing wonder.

Autonomy: build self-authorship by using reflective humility, learning with others, and thoughtful planning

Simplicity: design a lifestyle of fewer distractions, and being intentional and flexible with what really matters.

Balance: pursue sustainable growth over reckless hustle, strategic trade-offs over myopic optimization.


As an INFP, I value creativity, empathy, and harmony; but I can be too optimistic.

As a Secret Weapon, I drive innovation by being nimble, autonomously creative, and unassuming.
