About Me


Ensure Children everywhere have the opportunity to a safe and happy childhood


Im a happy person who loves to live life to the fullest. This means different things to everyone, to me it can mean something exciting like scuba diving or cliff jumping but it can also mean spending a day with someone i'm close with or doing something which just makes me feel positive about this crazy world.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love fantasy; The world of Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia, The Crystal Cave and most aspects of the King Arthur story. I am into all types of music( even recently acquired a taste for country), am very fond of things that are played on acoustic guitar as it is always fun to imitate good music.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Vodou ceremony in the Dominican Republic by a Haitian priest.

Teach, Learn, Share

As a traveler from the US it is hard for me not to be viewed as privileged when I am in a country with a lower economic standing then my own. I believe that the true way to bridge this gap is to spend as much time as you possibly can in the shoes of the people who make up the country you are visiting. Time spent is really the only way to show that you are no different.
