About Me


"there are some days when i think i'm going to die from an overdose of satisfaction ..." SALVADOR DALI


Enjoy living and finding joy in simplicity. Believe that this and community is what brings happiness. What you have not.

Time is necessary to be creative.

Walking, biking, running, skateboarding to places is far more joyous than the alternative.

Love a good road trip.

Love a good festival

The outdoors breathes life into me.

Love water in any form ... river, lake, creek, beach.

Sun gives me sparkle.


community is the core
