About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Currently traveling in South America January 2020 until April 1st! Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Peru, Colombia!

I moved to the Bay Area (San Francisco), living near beautiful lake Merritt in Oakland and loving it since May 2018! I spent the past year and Columbia nine months, Brazil for months, and Cuba one month. It was another epic grand adventure

After 7 years on Maui leaving the hawaii dream – I can’t complain! Life is an adventure! While on Maui, I lived in a “super yurt” the first three years, then a huge 2200 square-foot yoga temple home near two waterfalls in the ocean! I am grateful for my travel to 36 countries, 100+ more to go! I am ferociously pursuing my dreams and making them all come true one by one! I would love to hear about YOU & your travels. PS....if you live in South America you get extra bonus points as I will be traveling there ALOT the next 5 years!

Born in Washington State, USA.
moved to Vancouver BC Canada 2002-2006.
Bored with USA/Canada culture & have a big
case of travel bug syndrome!
Traveled the globe for a few years.
9 months in India, 1.5 months in Nepal, 8 months in Thailand, 1 week in Japan & 5 months in Europe, which took me to Poland (mostly Krakow), Berlin, Amsterdam, Prague, Budapest, Slovakia, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Finland and Austria. January 2012 spent 6 weeks in Peru & Ecuador!

January-July 2009 went to Thailand for 6 months of yoga 'jedi' training at Agama Yoga school on Kho Phangan.

July 2009 MOVED TO MAUI, HAWAII to fulfill a life dream (so as not to have ANY regrets!). Surfs up!

DEC/JAN 2012 :: Ecuador & Peru trip 1.5 months.

DEC/JAN 2015 :: Morocco, SPain & France trip 2 months

I have a deep passion for music, massage, yoga & healthy green living!
Left my comfortable nice home in Vancouver BC after 4 years. I was heavily involved in promoting music events there with my collective www.BeatsWithoutBorders.com which are global fusion/world electronica multimedia events with live band, djs, dancers, video, etc..
In January 2011 I began organizing similar music events here on Maui, so far bringing maestros of global electronica such as GAUDI, Nickodemus, David Starfire with my events Beats Bazaar productions:
www.Origins-BeatsBazaar.com
Now, my latest music/video/travel project: www.RemixTheEarth.com

I make music, play in bands, & dj since 1998.
my music can be heard at www.soundcloud.com/Boogiemeister
And my new website: www.Boogiemeister.com
and if you search "Bionic Love Soundsystem" or "Boogiemeister" name online can find my music. IF you are a musician, come stay at my place & we can write some songs! I play bass, guitar & synth. Oh and cowbell!

WORK :: I'm a massage therapist by day & wedding DJ by night (well a few gigs a month). I feel very blessed that these jobs allow my the freedom of only working 10-15 hours a week & having LOTS OF FREETIME FOR FUN THINGS ON MAUI!

I taught yoga for 6 months but didnt feel right for me to teach, although i love doing 'partner yoga' or teaching one-to-one.

Living my dream, come join me!

Surfs up!!!
