About Me


Advancement of the Human Species


A human in a soundbyte. Hmmm.


Life is too short not to be enjoyed. Do the best you can with what you have. Advantages are taken, not handed out. My philosophy changes with my perspective.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


In my own way.


So much to write, so little space. Backpacking, reading, martial arts, snowboarding, traveling, swimming, rock climbing, stimulating conversation, music, revelations, knowledge to be gained, photography, motorcycles, surfing, cooking, massage, astral projection, meditation, slacking off, the list goes on...

Music, Movies, and Books

Somewhere between books on metaphysics (The Synchronized Universe) and cartoons (Archer), and most everything in between.
