About Me

CURRENT MISSION

If there wasn’t anything to find out, it would be dull. Even trying to find out and not finding out is just as interesting as trying to find out and finding out; and I don’t know but more so.

ABOUT ME

Please read my profile before contacting me... I am INDEFINITELY traveling right now, so I will not be able to host since I have no definite home.

I've been working as an English Language Teaching Assistant in Spain for 2 years and I've been hopping around Europe as well. I'm temporarily back in the states and about to embark on a South America adventure in March.

PHILOSOPHY

The most important thing in life is not the triumph, but the struggle...

Eventually it will all work out.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I enjoy eating foods that aren´t "typical" like calves brain, snails, bulls tail.... I´ve climbed 27 of the 51 highpoints in the United States, some more than once. I ran a half marathon in Málaga on April 11, 2010 which I have to say was probably one of the most physically and mentally challenging things I´ve ever done. I hiked the Camino de Santiago, about 780 kms/500 miles from St. Jean Pied de Port to Santiago de Compostela then ran with the bulls in Pamplona... yea, I love adventure
