About Me


To co-create a vibrant, fun sustainable community which spirals toward higher consciousness and ecstatic connection!


Easygoing, environmental, and empathetic (perhaps to a fault). I like to do things alone, and really like to do things with people. I enjoy seriousness and humor, exertion and rest, water and good beer. I love an adventure. My mind is perilously open. I am seeking to know myself truly and hide nothing.


To live deliberately, and love unconditionally.
Life is both long and short, so seize the day and never hurry.
I am a product of my genes and environment, with full responsibility for everything I experience.
Life means only what I make it mean. Or 42. Not quite sure on that one.
