About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Meet new people, new mountains, and new ways of living life to the fullest

ABOUT ME

I am a strong believer in green tea, I have a constant desire to learn whether that be craft, activity, lifestyle, music, or plants, I never understood the concept of a "job", I'm gullible because I believe anything is possible, severely addicted to coffee and sleep. I love rain. Dancing. and the two together. Mountains are my spirit. I don't think I will spend much time where they don't triumph. All I want from other people is honesty.

PHILOSOPHY

Just BE. the rest will follow.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Some friends and I were invited to a Sufi Islamic festival at the house of a generous Sheik in the Tafilalt Oasis in Morocco. To set the scene: we were in an old clay kasbah where roughly 100 families lived together, we were invited inside a room with pillows all around the edges where we sat cross-legged because to show the bottoms of your feet is offensive, the roof had a big latch door made of large palm leaves where the women were stealing glances at the curious scene down below, a few men were singing Qur'anic songs and playing drums. After a massive delicious meal we shared with the musicians and ate with our hands, the music began again and became more energetic and we all danced and clapped along. The Sufi religion is extremely captivating and to experience it firsthand was possibly the best time of my life yet. The laughter and sensation of natural adrenaline was infectious and impossible to suppress.

Teach, Learn, Share

did you know: if you "drown" a fly in water, tie a string to its leg, then pour salt on it, it will come back to life and voila! you have a pet balloon! you might need samurai power to catch the fly first...perhaps watch karate kid or kung fu panda. just some advice. i can't whistle...and its my ultimate downfall, so if you teach me that i will be utterly appreciative.i can give hair wraps, make you laugh, pop gum, latte art, cpr certified (don't get any ideas though haha), make one nostril twitch without moving the other, and almost, almost yodel. ps i'm a pro at finger paint
