About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Dejar el mundo cambiarme, para que yo podría cambiar el mundo.

ABOUT ME

I am a hippie at heart, a shy extrovert, a hopeless romantic, and a relentless optimist on a mission to change the world.

Soy un hippie de corazón, extrovertido y tímido, un desesperado romántico y un optimista inexorable en una misión para cambiar el mundo.

PHILOSOPHY

I am thankful each day for what I have, but I will never stop trying to better myself and the world around me. I love life and I search for beauty in everything.

Agradezco mucho por todo lo que tengo, aunque nunca dejo de intentar a mejorar a mi y el mundo. Me encanta la vida y siempre me busca la belleza en todo.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Swam with sharks, sea turtles, and sea lions in the Galapagos; watched the sunrise over the ancient Inca ruins of Machu Piccu; witnessed the political unrest in the Peruvian alto plano which ultimately led to riots and 6 deaths in Puno; saw firsthand the power of mother earth as the Volcan Tungurahua put on a beautiful light show over the town of Baños, Ecuador; played in the bioiluminecese filled waters at the beach of Leo Carillo; met a 6 year old Aymara girl who is possibly the happiest person I have ever known, in spite of the fact that her family of 6 lives in a single room hut without any of the material possessions the Western world takes for granted.

Nadé con tiburones, tortugas marinas y lobos marinos en las islas Galápagos. He visto la salida del sol sobre las antiguas ruinas incas de Machu Picchu. Fuí testigo de la agitación política en el alto plano de Perú, donde en última instancia, provocó disturbios y 6 muertes en Puno. Vi de primera mano el poder de la madre tierra, el Volcán Tungurahua que pusó en un hermoso espectáculo de luces en la ciudad de Baños, Ecuador. He jugado en las aguas bioiluminecese en la playa de Leo Carillo. Conocí a una niña Aymara de 6 años quien es posiblemente la persona más feliz que he conocido, aunque su familia vive en una choza pequeña sin ningunos de los bienes materiales que el mundo occidental que ha dado por sentado.
