About Me

My name is Jake Runnels and I am 20 years old and looking to travel the world and meet fascinating individuals. I am an obsessive practitioner of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I love to learn new skills and constantly devote my time to getting better at things( including: Guitar, Language learning, Meditation, basketball, archery, etc.) I love exercising and spending time in nature. I have lived in America all my life.

I am looking to travel the world. I think it is a unique way to meet new people and learn about the culture.
