About Me

CURRENT MISSION

My mission is to educate, champion and inspire others through the sharing of common experiences, timeless wisdom and eternal hope through individual and group connections.

ABOUT ME

Jack of all trades, master of one. I have a wide variety of interests. My main one being exploring the meaning of life, relationships and the human experience. I am a realistic idealist and enjoy the daily experience of finding balance in life.

I believe life is about learning experiences and flow.

I enjoy cooking with friends and exploring lots of different world cuisines. I also enjoy board games, especially Scrabble, Trivial Pursuit and cribbage.

I'm very flexible and will easily work with your schedule, as a host or guest.

I have spent 3 summers traveling in Europe. Have lived in 7 states, covering most sections of the US and visited or driven through about 75% of the US. Also lived one year in the Bahamas and spent a week in Mexico exploring the Cancun area. I love living in the San Francisco Bay Area with it's generous mix people from all over the world.

PHILOSOPHY

Live in the NOW - Carpe Diem!
True religion is real living; living with all one's soul, with all one's goodness and righteousness. (Albert Einstein)
- Strangers are just friends you haven't met yet.
- Friends are the family you choose for yourself.
