About Me

Born and raised in Orlando, FL. I’ve been very lucky to have travelled a lot. Living in Japan for a year and then backpacking through South East Asia included some of the best experiences of my life. I have endless trip ideas that I’m always gradually planning. I had a great experience in Costa Rica right after high school. It was my first time out of the country and it manifested into an obsession of studying our planet. I feel satisfied with what I’ve been able to do so far, but let’s be honest, it never ends...

I enjoy hosting people whenever I can, and having those hostel style conversations even when I’m not traveling. But my schedule is very busy. I always recommend visitors in Central Florida to check the Space Coast launch schedule and also see one of our many natural Springs.
