About Me




Love travelling and meeting people, learning about different cultures--languages, food, dances, games, everything. I love busy marketplaces with fresh fruit. I try my hand at writing. I like to sit around sometimes. I love ethnic music, particularly African stuff and just getting in to South American stuff. Laying on a beach beneath the stars is epic.
Jack Kerouac is king:

"I like too many things and get all confused and hung-up running from one falling star to another till I drop. This is the night, what it does to you. I had nothing to offer anybody except my own confusion.

And I saw that my life was a vast glowing empty page and I could do anything I wanted.."


Love people
Happiness is only real when shared
