A growing collection of books, films, TED Talks, and more that have resonated with me.
And that I want to share with you.
Anything to add? Let me know.


Inevitably, when I share what I do for a living with someone, we get into a great discussion about this book or that documentary that is a "must-see". Over the years, I've been collecting (mentally and in hard copy) books, documentaries, and other inspirational pieces that have changed my life.

I'm keeping a list here, for days when you feel like you need a little inspiration, want to check out something new, or are trying to remember the name of that book or film that chaned your life. Please, share your favorites. This list is ever-expanding.
