About Me


Life is short. Break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably and never regret anything that made you smile.


I realized I don't want to live the same mundane life so many live. As a result I am traveling and living life while I still have the so-called "freedom" to do so.


Slowly but surly my life revolves around nature and the commonly unperceived aspects of the outside world. Whether hanging on my fingerboard or climbing a 5.12, I always comprise my whole mental and physical being into the experience. This provides me the opportunity to succeed in these endevours. This effort overflows into numerous other aspects of my, far from clandestine, life.
