About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To enjoy life...

ABOUT ME

I am your typical friendly, outgoing person who wants to see the world. Iowa is currently where I call home, but I have lived all over the US. While I know Iowa isn't really a destination for most people, it is a pretty comfortable place to be as far as cost of living and good people. I totally understand if you are just driving through and need a place to stay for a night, whether it be due to traveling cheaply or wanting to meet new people, drop me a line!

I truly would like to meet you(yes, you reading this!!), so drop me a line and let's get coffee or a beer or play some disc golf or go for a hike.

PHILOSOPHY

"We are torn between a nostalgia for the familiar and an urge for the foreign and strange. As often as not, we are homesick most for the places we have never known." ~Carson McCullers

"Iowa, not a great place to take a vacation, but a great place to call home" - my dad(maybe from someone else before that though)

Made a homemade rope swing in Nicaragua and played on it while the sun was setting, any of the summits I hit while in Glacier National Park, and a flightseeing tour of Mt. Denali(McKinley) in Alaska.
