About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Do at least one more windmill dunk in my life

ABOUT ME

I'm a young man, with that old soul.
Experiences are worth more to me than diamonds and gold.
I've got joy in abundance.
I've got a life full of substance.
I count my blessings.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Those moments in life that you wish you could capture:

Sunset surfing in San Diego, Cali and La Barra, Uruguay

Drinking rum and Red Stripe with locals in Jamaica's countryside

Playing the djembe pon de rooftop in Senegal while Askey played guitar

Standing on Mount Olympus calling for Zeus

Standing atop Guyana's Turtle Mountain and seeing only vast rainforest

Seeing the unbelievably elusive black jaguar in Guyana's interior

Hang-gliding over the magnificent city of Rio - AMAZING

Teach, Learn, Share

Three words to live by: JUST DO IT
If you want it go and get it
If you don't you might regret it

Everything will always work out. As soon as I started truly believing this, everything truly starting working out. And I started living life to the fullest and experiencing things I didn't think I would ever really get to see or do.

Attitude and perception affect your reality. SO, by adjusting the way you think, you can adjust your reality. Again, once I learned this I made my reality something I am so happy to wake up to be in every morning.

What I Can Share With Hosts

An unforgettable experience.
