About Me


To see as much of the world as possible, and begin to understand the diverse viewpoints of the people who create it.


I am a very eclectic person who enjoys a good time within certain limits of action and activities. I don't smoke any substances but have been known to imbibe various amounts of ethanol in different solutions. I enjoy most films, especially psychological thrillers and short films. I really enjoy tabletop role-playing games (D&D) and aspire to do parkour. I am interested in pholosophy and real philosophical problems as well as continentalist issues. I am a life long learner and will never stop trying to learn. I hope someday to be overqualified for any job i want to get and therefore be woefully unemployed simply because I am too good, and pass all of this knowledge on to as many people as possible.


Life is too short to think of what one wants for ones self. Once we are dead the only thing that will remain of us are the experiences we have shared with others. These memories will be good or bad depending on what we have made our personal mission in life. This is a simple fact that is undeniable.
This does not stop the fact that we must earn what we pass on. So the first thing I must do is support myself to earn these experiences. Then I must earn the experiences I wish to pass on. I must pass on my experiences and provide a way for others to gain more experiences than I have had. Because experiences often cost money I must earn enough to pass on to others so they can grow as well.
Everything I have received from society, be it the food stamps i have recieved, the financial assitance through college, the education from my father and mother, the friendship from other members of society, the hatred from others I have experienced due to these things even, was an investment in me by society that I must provide a return on. For the negative attention I have received or the fines i have been charges, I will return understanding and philanthropic investments in others. I plan on returning this in full for I have been blessed with an amazing life and story that few can attest to. I hope to give many people who started in my position the same opportunities i have had and greater still.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I grew up in American Poverty. I've been homeless. I've been in fostercare. I am now attending college earning almost 4 times as much as my entire family did growing up. It's almost time to start giving back.

Teach, Learn, Share

I have yet to fill this out. There is just too much to share with people. I'm sure we can find anything interesting. I'm a fairly open book.
