About Me

I enjoy meditation, and exploring new areas; learning about new cultires. I'm a Colorado (USA) native and while I grew up snowboarding, I now live somewhat like a monk when I'm not working. I don't drink/smoke. I can show you local Colorado places.

I tend to try to find free things to do (like to talk about the meaning of life, go on walks, do yoga/Tai chi, and enjoy a nice sunrise/sunset) and prefer not to go places that cost money (restaurants, coffee shops).
