About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To be happy and live simply, with a balanced mind and spread that to everyone I meet

ABOUT ME

I am a naturalist at the core. I love the outdoors and live a simple life in my hammock, traveling. I really like to just live off of personal connections and networking. I work seasonal outdoor education jobs like summer camps, outdoor schools, and farms. Usually when I am not working I am traveling.

I'm pretty much a big kid and love playing and teaching children outdoors. I love hiking and camping and just generally exploring and adventures. I am interested in sustainable living And natural skills.

I have been on a spiritual journey over the last many years always learning from my experiences. I am constantly striving to expand my awareness of myself and the world around me. My dream is to share the land with my family and community, homesteading and teaching and playing with children in nature.

Currently I am living in Baltimore and for the first time I get to host! I'm excited to finally give back the hospitality that I have received.

PHILOSOPHY

Are you jealous of the ocean's generosity?
Why would you refuse to give
this love to anyone?

Fish dont hold the sacred liquid in cups!
They swim the huge fluid freedom
-Rumi

Basically share the love of life with everyone.

Teach, Learn, Share

I have been traveling and living outside for the last 5 years and have lots of stories to share. I also love talking science or philosophy and making new discoveries through conversations with new friends. I have a lot of knowledge about the outdoors from survival skills to plant identification. Also I have taught a bunch of people how to juggle. Or I can teach you some sign language.
