After ditching the glitz of showbiz, I found myself wrangling sheep in the Idaho mountains and collecting a merry band of canines. My to-do list? Building e-commerce websites, crafting audiobooks, and flying drones for some top-notch film shots. And just when I thought I’d run out of wild career switches, MuddyUm came calling. Now I’m on yet another adventure. It’s like I’m in a continuous loop of “What’s next?” and honestly? It’s a blast!
