About Me


Get back on the road!


Create your own visitor map!

I'm trying hard every day to discover more and more about myself. In doing so, I will try to remember to update this section more often.

I love people. More than I love people, I love new experiences. More than I love new experiences, I love nature. More than I love nature, I love life.

I love living and sharing new experiences with people on this glorious, magical sphere we call Earth.

"Few men are willing to brave the disapproval of their fellows, the censure of their colleagues, the wrath of their society. Moral courage is a rarer commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence. Yet it is the one essential, vital quality for those who seek to change a world which yields most painfully to change." - Robert F. Kennedy


I'm still working on this.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I host and go to gatherings when I'm able. One of these days, I will also say that I have surfed.


MUSICCCC!!!!, travel (specifically roadtrips), the beauty in seemingly insignificant things, photography, art, literature, camping, and new interests.
