About Me


smiling until my face hurts


I hail from America's finest city, San Diego, California. After attending skool in Los Angeles I spent a year playing football i.e. soccer. Then I moved to Brasil to learn Portuguese, Samba, why Brasileros are sooooo cool. After 7 months of living Rio de Janeiro, I had accomplished these goals and decided to do some exploring.I had a stint of meandering around South America before I landed in Buenos Aires. I lived for a year in Buenos Aires trying to learn Castellano and teaching a little English. I spend most of my time skateboarding, reading, playing futbol and drinking yerba mate....yuuummmmm.....I am going to drink some right now...After leaving BA I went to the states for a few months to hang out with my family and give my mom a big kiss.  Then I got a job teaching in a public school in the Basque Country.  I decided to pick up my things and move out to San Sebastian - Donosti and am currently loving this new adventure.And I think nature is cool.Send me a message, we will hang out.Peace!


The best vibes to kick are the Irie ones.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

My little brother and I walked from Alaska over a mountain range into Canada. It was a long way. I learned that the best water comes directly from glaciers, that bears are really big and really, really fast, that you can never have enough liquor when camping, and Canadian people are hilarious.
