About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Inspire and lift the world

ABOUT ME

Healthy, strong individual from an amazing family. Grew up taking saunas and jumping in the lake. Read Walden, then built a cabin and survived winter with nothing but the woodstove. Spent summers trail building. My favorite place to be is outside. Love to cook and eat, dance and sing, play. On a mission to put people in space. Lover of life.

PHILOSOPHY

I am here to be a part of this amazing human experiment.
