About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Living our dreams!

ABOUT ME

We just moved to North Dallas at the end of January from Oklahoma and we're glad to be back in Texas! We live right in the heart of the Galleria/Addison area with lots to do around us. We're still somewhat new to the area and we're always looking for a reason to explore our new surrounding... Come join us on the adventure!

Before living in Oklahoma for nearly two years we lived in Houston Texas and can tell you lots of hidden gems and must see/do things in Houston. We loved showing people our favorite places that you won't read on your typical tourist todo list. We're in the process of learning the same for our new location... come learn with us!

PHILOSOPHY

you're alive... have fun and enjoy the time you have. you may not get another chance to be happy so don't waste your time being mad... just accept life and love it!

Interests

live music, art, skydiving, motorcycles, skateboarding, kite surfing, volleyball/walleyball, soccer/football, traveling and spending time with my friends and family.

Music, Movies & Books

movies: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Garden State, Memento, Donnie Darko, Swingers, Shawshank Redemption, Electric Apricot - Quest for Festeroo, and lots more...

music: I love music... Anything to do with Les Claypool(Primus, Sausage, Oysterhead, C2B3, Frog Brigade, Holy Mackerel, etc...), ska, punk, country, bluegrass, funk, folk, etc... I'm very diverse in my music and I love live music! If there is a show you wanna see I'll probably join you...

books: "South of the Pumphouse" by Les Claypool, "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" by Hunter S. Thompson, and pretty much anything else by Hunter S. Thompson... other than that, I should probably make more time for reading.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Watching the sun set while floating through the sky in a parachute.

Teach, Learn, Share

I could probably teach you to juggle... and maybe a little poi.
