About Me

CURRENT MISSION

"not all who wander are lost"

ABOUT ME

A recent college graduate and am now a functioning member of the workforce. I assist with environmental compliance on industrial construction sites and oil fields.

I think that by traveling and experiencing the diversity of communities that are out there, I am better able to evaluate, understand and appreciate different social organizations.

PHILOSOPHY

peace just isn't a hand signal, it is a way of living one's life.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

-romping around through an old castle in Trim, Ireland. I went right after graduating High Shchool with five we friends and going to the castle was our first adventure and realization that were were FREE and had the ability to go or do whatever we had the inspiration to find.
-standing at the top of a landfill in Monteray, California. This was when I was awestruk at my country's willingness to sacrifice the Earth for our satisfaction of "wants". The Monteray landfill was progressive and proved that sustainable practices are in fact possible when communities become more conscious of thier impact.
-traveling to south africa and living with my host mom in Amachlube, Durban. the women in the village were so accomodating and self-less when showing us their village and sharing thier stories.
