About Me


See the world. Save the animals. Enlightenment.


Vagabond, vegetarian, weird, hippie guy, Oahu and Kauai beach bumming, lived in San Francisco, 3 months in Europe, 3 months in Turkey. I am a huge animal person. Very chill; talk slow, think fast. Avid runner, did half marathon a year ago. Happiest when I am outdoors. Instilled with manners, morals, and the concept of common courtesy since childhood. Ongoing love affair with the far east. I am wandering right now, looking to find my new home. Dream of teaching English in a remote village somewhere. Natural, organic living. I am not the most educated, but I am on my way to mastering the art of happiness and following one's true bliss. I also sing. And I promise, I am really, really nice.

Also, my blog(s):



My personal philosophy is to strive to be the most good that I can be, to educate myself, to appreciate every single moment, to be conscientious of my own feelings and find the balance between my own happiness and helping others find theirs, to find enlightenment, to live well. I have a hunger for life and cannot wait to see where I end up. It's all about the journey, maaaan.

I hate money, I hate material possessions and the power they hold over us, I will give you everything I have and hope you can do the same for me.

"It's good to be scared. That's how you know you're really doing something." -JayPapa$$

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Spending a total of 11 hours getting to the top of Stairway to Heaven hike on Oahu. Singing on the streets in San Francisco. Boating on the river Seine in Paris. Seeing the statue of David in Florence, Italy when I was 14. Camping under the stars on the beach in Malta. Climbing Mt. Vesuvius.

I will find one thing everyday which will leave me awestruck.
And that is how I think Life should be lived.
