About Me


to break from the chains of routine


A recent graduate (kind of... its complicated) looking for that cliched calling in life. Taking some time to travel, gain perspective, and attempt to understand who I am and what I wish to do. Unsure about my future, but certain about my beliefs and desires: to learn everything, meet everyone, and cherish all moments and experiences.


"When you come to a fork in the road, take it" -Yogi Berra

"the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn burn burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.." - Kerouac in On the Road
