About Me

CURRENT MISSION

very simple: change the world and travel while doing it. also, to find the perfect bloody mary...

ABOUT ME

I spend way too much time on computers. When I'm not on a computer, I'm either wandering around with my camera, or in transit to hopefully someplace wonderful.

I eat plants(mostly), into electronic music, and rock and everything in between and not between. I play guitar, but I'm considering selling my electric for a better camera...sigh.

PHILOSOPHY

dream your life, then live your dreams
