On one wall, Nate has grouped some of his favorite pieces of art.
The picture of the cactus was given to Nate by his late partner, Fernando Bengoechea. Next to it is a naturally shed tortoise shell, which reminds Nate of the tortoise shell that hung above the fireplace in his childhood home.
The piece titled "God Bless America" was created by a Spanish artist. Nate says it reminds him that it's important to be a citizen of the world.
