About Me


the revolution starts in ur mind but i plan to lead the world one mind at a time!


I am a cool cat that is just looking to be a mind expander! I feel that I was put here on this earth to be more than the average joe and I am working dilligently to become a professor in the near future. Im an exchange student in Salvador da Bahia, Brazil till dec 2009 and i plan to start working for a non profit community service organization when i get home while applying to grad school. Aside from my life aspirations i love all kinds of things and have a variety of interests. I love the beach, im gonna learn to surf on this trip! I really enjoy my new camera and taking pics, one day hope to take up surf photography as a hobby. I am a hardcore San Diego Chargers fan and love amercian football amongst many other sports. I like to read books by my namesake Carlos Castaneda who wrote a series of books about Mexican metaphysical sorcery...its pretty fresh but kinda on some other shit! lol other than that i love to go out and party i like to dance and hope to learn samba and salsa this trip too. i most have so much more to tell that makes me the man i am but if you wanna more just holla!


always seaching for the warriors wisdom...and looking to have a good time along the lets party!
