About Me


to figure out how i can convince someone to pay me to travel around the world


i work to live and never the opposite way around. when i'm not working i really live well. and when i'm working i manage to have a good time too.


try new things. get out of your comfort zone. make mistakes. take educated risks. you'll learn a lot about yourself and the world around you.


travel, ultimate frisbee, hiking, other cultures, food, music, photography, motorcycles

Music, Movies, and Books

right now i'm loving some of the more famous african musicians like manu dibango and oliver mtukudzi. but today i spent the better part of a morning downloading afrika bambaataa and other "electro funk" artists. one of my favorite movies is "2001: a space odyssey" and "a people's history of the US" has been sitting on my shelf waiting to be read for a while now.
