On a quest to discover the remarkable amount that we all have in common as a species on this beautiful planet.
I'm drawn to adventure. The beauty and wonder of the great outdoors captivates me, which is why I would rather be outside. While I love staying active, I also enjoy those quiet moments where I can sit in peace and let my mind wander, or where I can dive into a novel and be immersed in the story. I enjoy the humbling moments in life and I'm always up for learning something new.
"One of the most important things in life is to be where you want, and make it work from there."- Tom Routh
Get out and explore the world. Meet interesting, diverse people. Learn all you can. Dream wonderful things--and then pursue them. Blaze your own path. Pursue adventure, experiences, relationships, passions, and ultimately, love.
Every 6-year-old is an environmentalist. I just never grew up.

Teach, Learn, Share
I can pass on wilderness survival skills, how to pick a guitar, and train you to be a pro at passing a frisbee.
Would love to learn your favorite recipes, how to dance without the need for intoxication, new languages, and most importantly, what your story is.
