About Me


To look for beauty everywhere, to help others and to become part of the solution


Green Things, Music, Writing, Books, Adventures, Drinking Too Much, Trying to Help, Constantly Learning


We are all dead until we live our lives. No holding back, no hesitation. People can talk about doing something their entire life, never take action and wonder why life has passed them by. You are the one with the power to follow your dreams, therefore you are the only one who can take action in making them come true.


I love movies, music, a good conversation, and a quality adventure. I am also interested in international politics and how we as people can come together to create a better world.

Music, Movies, and Books

It's a Wonderful Life makes me want to be a better person. Ray Bradbury makes me want to read and write incessantly. I never cease to be inspired by all of the musicians I hear and meet.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've jumped off of waterfalls in the Dominican Republic, taken a motorcycle ride across the countryside. I've snorkeled the reefs of Andros Island in the Bahamas and swam with some incredible creatures. I took a train around America, stood over the Grand Canyon, and slept in the streets in California and Washington.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm always down to give some guitar lessons, I love cooking/baking and adore plants. I also do a great deal of video work and write a lot. Perhaps we could do an exchange of skills!
