About Me


To live this life to it's fullest by learning


I work/live in the social scene. I've been bartending for about 10 years now and still love it. I prefer to spend time alone or with my girlfriend in the woods, on the mountain, in the canyon, at a coffee shop, watching a show at the Gorge, playing boardgames, etc, but those things don't pay the bills!
Music is very important to me although I don't play as much as I would like. I listen to it daily and couldn't imagine a life without it.
I have traveled, but not as much as I would like to. A trip to Italy is in the works as well as my first visit to Yosemite N.P. I spend a lot of my time dialing in my Snowboard and Mt. Bike skills when the weather permits of course.
My long term goal in life is to create an environment where driving my car can almost become obsolete. I say almost because reality of things says otherwise at the moment.
I am a Vegetarian and have been for the last 11 years, and I haven't had cable TV in 15yrs (since I moved out of my parents). I am always open to trying new things. All in all I feel I have lived a wonderful fulfilling life so far and feel I bring enough to a table to keep this life interesting!


-Keep it simple!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Havasupi in the Grand Canyon is one of the greatest places on Earth IMHO. I have been there 6 different visits, and it has stunned me with it's absolute beauty every time.

Teach, Learn, Share

Did you know that by saying the word "Bacon" with a Jamaican accent it sounds like you're saying "Beer Can"? It works the other way around as well.
