"I was kind of raised to be cognizant of those around me; it was kind of baked in. My whole life has been around holistic living. I was raised with being mindful as a root tenet of life. I've been a vegetarian my entire life. Basically through that type of a path: Be conscious of what's going on; be mindful of the people around you. Be conscious of what the meanings are. Try to be somebody who's taking a perspective of the observer rather than the actor."
Watch out folks; he's got a camera...
