About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Go any(every)where, meet any(every)one, and see any(every)thing

ABOUT ME

Just moved back to the USA after finally going on the two year roamabout I spent years dreaming about while working in a job I didn't enjoy after college. Can't believe it's over though- I'm like a junkie, constantly still checking travel and vagabonding websites or hanging out in the travel section of bookstores. I've been a captain in the US Army; I've sailed across the Pacific on a 45 foot sailboat; I love magic, juggling, and the circus; I love to scuba dive but am wary of the cold water around here and not sure when I'll go. I just moved to Brooklyn and will be starting grad school in the fall.

PHILOSOPHY

Ahhh, this is one for a long evening with a few drinks, and probably some light back and forth arguing
