About Me


Give and Learn.

On an extended honeymoon cycle touring Europe with my wife.

Teacher and Biologist in central California. Easy going, never in a rush because I never really have a plan. Life is too short to take it too seriously. I see the wine glass half full, if it's half empty it needs to be refilled. I usually listen to the wind if I'm unsure about something. Always wanting to experience as much as possible. Different cultures and different ways of living are something that keeps me going. Whether I'm visiting a place or talking with someone about where they're from. Thinking I maybe should have been an anthropologist. Cultural Cuisine is top on my list when traveling, you never know what strange dish may become a new favorite.


You only live once.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

...It's hard to pick. Life is full of them.
Recently getting married.

Teach, Learn, Share

Patience is a virtue, we all need to try a bit harder with it. Understanding of cultural differences is a way to bridge fears. Love and be loved in return.
