About Me


after my year of european travels, returned to the states for a while to save money and i'm back on the road again. currently hanging out in kenya. onto india in september.

old description: in august i left my beloved new orleans with a heavy heart. after watching my city drown and burn and watching my government ignore our desperation i was simply broken. needed a break from rebuilding to replenish my soul. set out to reclaim my faith in myself and in the universe. i want to see the world, i want to be humbled by how vast and beautiful it is, i want to be outside, i want to walk the earth. been gone for 11 months and so far i´m delighted with what this here world has to offer. enjoy not knowing where i´ll go next or how long i´ll be gone. trusting in the universe to take me where i need to go.
