I want to write the stories that aren’t being writtenBEAU HAAN
Today I’m joined by Beau Haan (@beauhaan). Beau Haan is an actor, model, and hosts a book club using Roam Research. I’d also add storyteller to that list, as Beau’s acting serves as a proxy for dramatizing our most cherished and timeless values. Beau has experience with the dark side of human nature and the transformative power of accepting the collective darkness in all our hearts – a subject we explore at depth in our talk.
