About Me


good food, good friends, good fun


i was born and raised in smalltown america (small farming community in michigan). i've been backpacking thru australia and new zealand for the past 2 1/2 years...along the way i've gotten quite attached to australia (specifically melbourne), so i'll be moving there as soon as my visa comes thru. in the meantime i'm enjoying the smalltown life again.


"Life's a journey, not a destination."

i believe in living a good life. i believe in karma...but i believe in creating a bit of mischief now and again. i believe in living in the moment. i believe in the power of chocolate and coffee.
