9 Positive Things From My Depression

I grew up on the West Coast in California and Alaska, and I’ve lived in San Francisco for 6 years. I’m newly married to an amazing woman, and I’m a big brother with 7 siblings. I was an officer in the Army for 8 years, and served on deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan. Mental health is extremely important to me, and I practice yoga, go to therapy, and play music as part of managing my depression. When I’m not working at Airbnb for my day job, you can find me running in Golden Gate Park, hiking in the Marin Headlands with my wife, or enjoying a nice cup of coffee with freshly baked bread.
