About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Do and see as much as time allows while meeting some interesting people along the way.

ABOUT ME

I quit my job the weekend before Christmas and have been traveling ever since. I am trying to explore as much as I can before I start my next gig. So far I have celebrated New Years in NYC, visited family all over the country, spent over a month exploring the wonders of Peru, sailed the British Virgin Islands aboard the Rozinante, climbed Mt. St. Helens, and spent over 2 months driving around the US exploring all of its outdoor wonders. Now I am trying my luck in Asia. Unfortunately this means I will not be hosting for a while, but I will be looking to surf some couches along the way.

PHILOSOPHY

Life is short. Don't waste time. Don't pass up opportunities. Be adventurous!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Met an amazing group of people in St. Johns that invited me to join there sail boat. I spent two weeks sailing the Caribbean with them and sleeping in my hammock on the deck of the boat. As we sailed to St. Thomas to drop me off at the airport they let me hold onto a rope behind the boat with snorkel gear on the whole way there. I was probably the largest piece of bait in the sea but it was pretty amazing to look down in the sea skimming along a 5 knots.
