About Me


See and experience this world as much as possible.


I am a wacky, laid back guy from the banks of the muddy Mississippi.


Try to understand as much as possible. Treat all living things with dignity.


I am very interested in music, philosophy, and the outdoors. I play the guitar, and just recently picked up the ukulele. Genres I have been enjoying lately are bluegrass, classical, and various indie folk bands. I studied philosophy for my undergraduate degree, and I am looking to pursue a graduate degree in the same field. I spend a lot of my time reading, and I am particularly interested in the works of Wittgenstein, Saul Bellow, and Henry Miller. I enjoy being in the outdoors as much as I can backpacking, hiking, biking, and canoeing.
