About Me

CURRENT MISSION

keeping good karma in circulation

ABOUT ME

I think that liking your location has more to do with who you are with than where you are. On that note, I can be happy just about anywhere as long as I'm with people that share a positive attitude.

PHILOSOPHY

I believe the best things in life have nothing to do with money.
