About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Travel the US and explore all the great spots of Chicago.

ABOUT ME

Always looking to try something new or help other's get into an activity or adventure. You can tell a lot about me from my Interests listed here.

PHILOSOPHY

I could rant for hours on this subject, so I'll discuss it if we end up meeting in person sometime! but until than i'll just post a few of my favorite quotes

"A true traveler has no set destination, and is not intent on arriving"

"A ship is safe at harbor, but that isn't what a ship was meant to do"

"Free advice is worth the price you pay"

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hitchhiked the coasts of Australia and new Zealand

Teach, Learn, Share

A question i always ask people to get to really know them is "what do you want to remembered for?" Alot of people usually state some invention or advancement in their industry.

Personally, I feel like anything i create or invent will be surpassed probably even in my lifetime. What i want to be remember for is the little bits of advice I can pass onto young people when I am older. Anybody whos been there and done that who takes the time to pass it on has always been a legend to me, so I just want to do my part
