Leaving St. Louis

St. Louis is a fine place. I love the city and cared deeply for the history and diversity of people. But I have wanderlust and a deep desire to broaden my perspective with experience. I am not wired to spend my life in the city I happened to be born into.

I also had some selfish itches for better:

  • economic opportunity
  • weather
  • global connection
  • cultural significance
  • progressive values
