About Me

CURRENT MISSION

"To wander to every wonder of the world and meet people who wander in wonder"

ABOUT ME

Let's just say you'll never meet another one like me. I'm all around goofy, playful, smart, sincere, and ready for anything. My passions in life include traveling, photography, learning (i'm a big nerd), people, and adventure. i also am a bit spiritual, thinking out of the box, naturally thrive for the outdoors and getting in touch with nature. life is too simple to make it complicated.

Finished my second round-the-world stint. Had the best year exploring the depths of South America.... all on my own whilst getting robbed twice, being put in jail once, almost being kidnapped, getting food poisoning three times, but still livin' and missin' it.

Then had a better year and half in SE asia exploring buddhism, climbing the himalayas, meeting the dalai lama, and getting food poisoning only 3 times (but all in china), and half a year in the middle east exploring the religious past of jerusalem, hitchhiking through jordan/egypt, snorkling in sinai, and camel riding across the pyramids.

one short stint back to south america to cruise to antartica... watching penguins flutter on iceburgs, and continuing onto ecuador and columbia.

had been working in alaska for the two summers. serving on a train based in anchorage and traveling to fairbanks and seward. and have NOT seen the northern lights as of yet... booooooo!!!

And just of lately returned from travels in Australia, New Zealand, and Asia. Had a fantastic time going in the flow of life, adventures in manifesting, hitchhiking most of the continent, dumpster diving, enlightening hippie festivals, wwoofing, had our rucksacks stolen by aboriginals, stayed in the aboriginal community of Uluru, and meeting the most wonderful people in life.

What's life if you don't live it to the fullest and with passion.

PHILOSOPHY

do what you love and rest will follow...

Two roads diverged in a wood,
and I... I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

thank the past, remember the present, and have faith in the future.

not all those who wander are lost...
