About Me

CURRENT MISSION

BOUGHT THE TICKET, TAKING THE RIDE

ABOUT ME

I LOVE TO EXPLORE. IT IS IN MY BLOOD. I WAS RAISED AS A NOMAD. I CAN'T FATHOM A LIFE TIED DOWN TO ONE PARTICULAR LOCATION WHEN I STILL HAVE SO MUCH OF THIS BEAUTIFUL WORLD TO DISCOVER! I CURRENTLY RESIDE IN CHICAGO WHERE I AM A FOOD TOUR GUIDE.I WRITE IN ALL CAPS ALL THE TIME... I AM NOT ALWAYS YELLING... I JUST FIND IT VISUALLY APPEALING. IT'S BEEN A NASTY HABIT OF MINE SINCE TAKING SHOP CLASS IN JUNIOR HIGH... DRAFTING CLASSES REINFORCED THE HABIT. NEUTRA IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE FONTS...

PHILOSOPHY

"MAKE NO LITTLE PLANS. THEY HAVE NO MAGIC TO STIR MEN'S BLOOD AND PROBABLY THEMSELVES WILL NOT BE REALIZED." "TWENTY YEARS FROM NOW, YOU WILL BE MORE DISAPPOINTED BY THE THINGS YOU DID NOT DO, THEN THE ONES YOU DID. SO THROW OFF THE BOWLINES. SAIL AWAY FROM THE SAFE HARBOUR. CATCH THE TRADE WINDS IN YOUR SAILS. EXPLORE. DREAM...."

"SPEAK WHAT YOU THINK TODAY IN HARD WORDS AND TOMORROW SPEAK WHAT TOMORROW THINKS IN HARD WORDS AGAIN, THOUGH IT CONTRADICT EVERY THING YOU SAID TODAY."

One Amazing Thing I've Done

RAN/DANCED BAREFOOT THROUGH THE STREETS OF ROME LISTENING TO BAD BRAINS AND WATCHED THE SUN RISE OVER THE COLOSSEUM...

I WAS ARRESTED IN TARLABASI, ISTANBUL... AFTER BEING TAKEN TO THE POLICE STATION I WAS RELEASED DUE TO THE AMOUNT OF PAPER WORK THE COPS HAD TO PROCESS... GOTTA LOVE BUREAUCRACY...

Teach, Learn, Share

I NEVER LOST MY SENSE OF CURIOSITY... INSTILL YOUR KNOWLEDGE AND I WILL SHARE AS WELL... I AM DECENT AT YOGA... I CAN PRETEND TO PLAY THE VIOLIN AND I KNOW A DECENT AMOUNT ABOUT CINEMA, MUSIC, AND A BIT ABOUT ARCHITECTURE AND ART... CHANCES ARE PRETTY GOOD I'LL END UP CLIMBING A TREE OR ROLLING DOWN A HILL IF WE SPEND A DAY TOGETHER... OH AND I MAY CONVINCE YOU TO TAKE HOME A PIECE OF FURNITURE FROM THE SIDE OF THE ROAD WHILE WE ARE OUT AND ABOUT WALKING...
