About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Hapiness and fufillment

ABOUT ME

I am pretty easy going, love to meet new people and learn from them. I have a deep sense of one-ness with nature and hope to explore that in creative ways. I find that I am pretty self aware in different environments but have yet to find my place on this earth.

This September I will venture to Madrid, to follow my hearts desire and live abroad. I will be going to school and teaching English.

I find happiness in food and love to cook for others. I hope to learn worldwide cuisine, starting with traditional Spanish cuisine. Photography, philosophy, gardening, and art are a few of my passions.

Update: After moving to Madrid to pursue a career as an English teacher, I have decided to move back to the states due to the lack of jobs offered. However my 3 months in Spain and Europe have been a dream come true and have met so many wonderful people and have experienced an amazing culture. Who knows where my next destination may be!

Update 9/2013: after living in Orlando for about a year now I'm back on couch surfing. I currently work in outreach for a county office and still travel any chance i get!
