About Me


To smile, to travel, to be full of life


Happiest while dancing!


A ship in port is safe, but thats not what ships are built for.

Music, Movies, and Books

Sailing Alone Around the World by Joshua Slocum. I loved it- now I want to learn to sail!
Jane Austen junky- I'll admit it!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I realized people are usually not who you think they are. I was amazed to find out I am not who I thought I was. I forgot who I was going to be. I had the amazing fortune to see more in one summer than I ever thought I would get to see in my entire life. I planned to learn so much about myself during my adventures. Yet as I sought out history and culture, monuments and cathedrals I did not see myself, I passed right by. I am amazed that I have seen the unknown, and it remains unknown.

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to learn!!!
But I also want to be able to share my experiences and knowledge, and teach if at all possible- of course!
As of this moment, I have four main goals of things I would like to learn:
-I want to learn more about the world, its cultures and amazing people- by immersing myself into it!
-I want to learn to tell good stories, be able to captivate an audience- be able to make 'em laugh. I just don't have that talent, but I hope to! And I want to have good stories to tell!
-Learn to play guitar and be able to sing along- and not be afraid!
-Learn to sail! I'm a fun loving pirate at heart- always been drawn to the water!
