I hope you enjoyed this story. It’s based on true events in my life over the past few years. Chronicling my journey out of depression to finding a life of purpose. Abandoning a successful career as an architect to work as a security guard at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Soul searching in one of the world’s largest art collections and rediscovering my passion for art. Facing trials and tribulations, seeking refuge at the Cloisters, working nights and allowing my passion to grow even deeper. The experience was powerful and transformative. Now, I’ve returned to my hometown of Auburn, New York to start anew using the lessons I have learned. My purpose is to share these experiences and use the power of art to heal, inspire and awaken to the mystery we call life.
