Dumi works with people.
He does not like boxes and pigeon holes, especially those that we like to slot others into in our minds. He tries not to judge or label anyone, and does his best to take everyone as they show up, and not as as he would have them show up.

He is an avid reader, and is fascinated by people's reactions to their own mirror images and to change, all kinds of change. He is an aspiring, eclectic, writer. He writes about anything that catches his fancy, mainly about people and their stories, real or imagined.
His message? 'No boxes please, we are still evolving...'
