About Me

I like to keep things interesting. I never staying in one place too long. I love to do things on a whim. I enjoy spontaneity and wandering around the planet. I'm not much of a planner. I love meeting new people.


I love discussing science, technology, culture etc. over a few beers. I love to discover new music and share new music I have found. I love to travel, hike, rock climb, snowboard, ski, run, jump, swim, bike, skateboard and eat delicious food.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Recently I visited Yosemite National Park and was totally awestruck by the gigantic monoliths within and around Yosemite Valley. I was even more astonished by getting to see people climbing El Capitan. I love nature and it's usually my main reason for traveling to destinations. Yosemite was just the most recent of hundreds of times that nature has left my jaw on the floor.

The Burn at Burning Man was one of the most surreal moments I have ever witnessed. Such unbelievable mayhem in every direction as far as you can see. I don't think I will ever see any group of people doing something more ridiculous than that in my life.
