About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To just jump.

ABOUT ME

I have just moved back to NC (my home base) after living in Georgia, Alaska, North Carolina, and Hawaii for the past few years. I strive to live the simple life as I think it is the only way to peace and happiness for myself. I am on a constant journey to simplify my life in a way that works for me. This has proved to be a slow and deeply fulfilling path teaching me much about "village life", kindness, and the detriments of haste. I try to be fearless. I try to look at things that scare me and say, "wow, I'd really be proud of myself if I did that," and then just jump. I love to surf, cliff jump, body board, rock climb, waterski, camp, and anything else that makes me really scared and consequently, really proud. I want to be outdoors and most importantly, I want to try everything. I love fires and someday would like to live somewhere that I can chop my own wood (just need someone to teach me!)but until then, I find contentment around a crackling bonfire no matter the season.

PHILOSOPHY

Radical kindness and radical honesty.

Also, I attend Quaker meeting regularly and strive to live in accordance with Quaker ideals on simplicity, peace, integrity, community, and equality

Music, Movies, and Books

Books are my favorite thing. I collect them and never feel quite at home until my books are categorized and nestled into the dusty corners of whatever happens to be my current living space. I read anything and everything, sniffing bindings as I go.

I am determined to learn to pick the banjo. I had many'a failed attempt but, I'm a persistent person.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've been arrested in Paris for jaywalking, hit by a car while riding a scooter down Mt. Titlus in Switzerland, put a fallen contact lens back in while surfing a wave in Hawaii, and smacked a bear on the ass in Alaska.
