About Me


Following my bliss.


I'm a logical thinker and planner but I couple that with smartassery and fun where I can find it. I'm a lover of learning and want to experience as much as possible, though I battle a sometimes overwhelming social anxiety. Getting better though.


I just want to have fun and be happy. I gravitate toward people and experiences that bring me comfort. I hate wasting days, hours, or even minutes. It drives me crazy to think of how many artists, songs, conversations, philosophies, ideas, works, or friends I could be missing out on. No matter how much I learn or hear, I want to have more. I look for meaning in myself and my loves and do my best to glean every bit of meaning I can from the lives and examples of other people. I believe stories are our greatest gift as humans. Everyone has something funny, inspiring, scary, or interesting to share. I never tire of hearing people telling stories of their lives or even producing compelling fictions. It's amazing what we can learn from just telling our stories or listening to others.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I headed up a Habitat for Humanity build with local high school students. One of the most amazing things I have ever done.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach: Umm, not sure. I know a little about a lot I guess.
Learn: Please pass along any and all knowledge you've got!
Share: I love sharing stuff I love, from movies to music to books.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can always help carry a load, whether that means manual labor, cooking, cleaning up, etc. I'm a workhorse.
