About Me


finishing something


Traveling the world and myself trying to lose, gain, lose it all.

I seriously love this website and am eternally grateful for the constant reminders of just how great this universe can be when the right people and situations present themselves.

You know the CS story... quit life, surfed 40+ couches through 21 countries in 13 months... a slave to my memories, my writing, old books, and cheap wine.


make it up as you go
