@paisleymedia1: What’s a defining moment in your life? I don’t think I have one. I think of life in terms of benchmark moments that affect the direction you take and the opportunities that come by taking that path. We moved a lot in my youth and that affected how I look at the world. I think that gave me the courage to risk. I played University Volleyball and Coached elite High School athletes; that made me goal oriented. Being goal oriented helped me weather through the process of learning to write. I think that one benchmark experience begets another, and before you know it, you’re somewhere you never expected to be.
