About Me

CURRENT MISSION

live every day fully, and leave this world better than i found it

ABOUT ME

i´m an easy going guy, i´ve never been a person that you could classify by putting into any one social group. i genuinlly like people- i have a good time hanging out with anyone from mc´s and graffiti writters in some ghetto somewhere to a bunch of cowboys listening to sertanejo in the middle of nowhere. i love to travel, and have spent a good part of my life out on the road. i appreciate quality in all of its forms- good music, good food, good drink, good company- and feel that all the best experiances in life are some sort of combination of these kinds of quality. my experiance in this life has given me faith in humanity, and i exercise it by doing things that people say you can´t do- like hitch-hiking around and sleeping on random stranger´s floors.

PHILOSOPHY

live it up like fun was never outlawed. you only get this one shot....

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Man, don´t want to brag, but it´s a stack... one that comes to mind was when i was crewing a sailboat down the pacific coast of mexico and we came across a huge pod of spinner dolphins right at sunset. there were probably like a thousand of them, and they were jumping out of the water doing flips and spins and everything. at any given moment you could look in any direction and there were two or three in the air. the sky was all lit up with that pacific sunset light, and everything was glowing golden. it was pretty incredible.
