About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To travel to every country in the world & write a Travel/Human Interest Book about people in each country.

ABOUT ME

When I set a goal to do something, I go for it! I love people. If we all spent some time trying to help and encourage others, what a better place we would live in. Sports of all sorts are great. Staying out partying is cool too. I love to smile, it wakes up others from the mundane parts of life.

PHILOSOPHY

Love & share, treat others with respect. Give to others always. Everyone has gifts that they alone can share. Don't hold back, make the world a little better. Inspire someone today.

I have had some great experiences and met some great people because I am an extrovert. I think that you have to live like every day is your last. Wouldn't you take more risks and live a little differently if today was all that you had?
