About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Enjoying life and planning more adventures

ABOUT ME

I am a perpetual student and opportunistic teacher. I'm laid-back and passionate, adventurous and lazy; I love to explore the outdoors and snuggle up in a blanket to read a book. I'm pretty much up for whatever.

PHILOSOPHY

do what makes you happy now; push the limits of your comfort zone; try everything in life that's worth trying
