About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To live in the moment and appreciate the little things in life.

ABOUT ME

Easy going, adventurous, open minded, outdoor enthusiast... thrill seeker. I love skydiving, bungee jumping, paragliding, rock climbing, biking, longboarding, anything outdoors you bet i'm up for it. Not that I'm amazing at it!;) I don't enjoy going to clubs, whenever I go you know I just got dragged and will probably be the first one out. I love road trips and late notice travels. I love meeting and hanging out with new people. I believe in trying everything... and so far I have whenever I got the opportunity.Diversity rocks my world... I love people who are radically inclusive and relentlessly compassionate.I like thinkers and believers, but more importantly I love doers. I have great respect for people who have a burning desire to fight for things they want and love the most, and in the process end up inspiring others for the better. I'm not the biggest fan of video games. I rarely watch tv (but I do love independent films and documentaries).I am known for being a status quo rebel... go figure that one out for yourself...

PHILOSOPHY

"Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as in how you choose to live and give"

"To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment." Ralph Waldo Emerson

"
To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded." -you can say i'm a fan of RWE :)
