About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To travel as much of this earth as possible and meet as many different kinds of folks as I can along the way.

*Also, I am profoundly devastated and disappointed that the U.S. narrowly elected a monster of a human being as President and I'm not sure what that will mean for our country. But what I do know is that tens of millions of Americans despise him and do not represent what he stands for. And we will do everything possible to make sure he doesn't get his way. I can assure you of that. I would love to host you to show you that we are not all like him.*

ABOUT ME

When I was a kid I was obsessed with a few things and they all sort of overlapped. Animals, unique cultures, and Africa. Those interests haven't faded a bit. I spent a summer during college in Tanzania and am anxiously waiting for my next opportunity to go back. I try and spend as much time outdoors as possible hiking, running, camping, etc. I went to school for conservation biology and I'm very passionate about using different forms of media to communicate the importance of protecting our environment.

Another key ingredient to my being is that of music. Some people like to try and define themselves by a particular thing, which is very difficult for me to do, if not impossible, but if I could pick a few things to define myself by one of them would certainly be music. I've spent my entire life making music in various bands, choirs and other outlets and continue to do so.

I also like history. And read voraciously.

PHILOSOPHY

I think my 'Mission Statement' and 'About me' satisfy this question as well.
