About Me

==== PLEASE DO NOT SEND REQUESTS FOR MORE THAN ONE TRAVELER, I DO NOT HOST MORE THAN 1 PERSON AT A TIME ====

CURRENT MISSION

enjoy more, worry less, have fun either way

ABOUT ME

I'm someone who doesn't believe we're born to work most of our time in something unexciting. Life's better than that, and that's why I started a Game Company! I live by my own in a nice small house with a big red couch waiting for surfers.

PHILOSOPHY

Everything is impermanent.
