About Me


Grew up in the beautiful Appalachian mountains and currently making my rounds in North America and Europe. Like most of you, I have always had a rambling spirit. I love playing in the wild and am always looking for a new forest to explore. I enjoy the simple things in life and consider myself a minimalist. I have always resisted the empty consumer society and have enjoyed finding a more fulfilling life.
