to create a life of great passion
Born and raised in NY with an overflow of wanderlust since. Everything on this green earth captivates me, even the simplest things like a drunken butterfly swooping in and out of flowers is precious. I enjoy things of their purest forms for what they are. I've traveled down the entire northwest, and south eastern coasts by car; I would do it again. I love painting, drawing, reading, writing, and creating things in general. I have a deep love for Philosophy, Sociology, and Buddhism. Acceptance and awareness are two things I am sure to practice daily. I love and am open to meeting new people, its always a great experience. I would like to live in Spain for a couple months in the future, but before that explore the shores of Alaska.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
In 2007 I had moved from the suburbs of Long Island to a small town in Three Rivers, TX. The experience for those months were great, I made a few close friends and I discovered the great feeling of living in the middle of nowhere. The stars at night were so clear and the sky was undisturbed by light pollution.
Somewhere in 2009 I worked with World Vision and took a trip to West Virginia to help rebuild a deck and re-shingle a roof for an older couple. The trip was a lot of fun, I also worked with children in a bible study summer camp although I'm not religious I enjoyed being involved and helping people out. Besides the community West Virginia offered a beautiful landscape of mountains and giant rivers to admire.
Going cross country, sleeping in the woods, waking up to the mountains. The entire trip left me speechless!
