About Me


To be content


I am a mountain boy from southern Appalachia, currently studying renewable energy. Like most people on this site I'm a traveler at heart. I love to explore and try to have as diverse and unique experience as possible. I'm happiest when playing in the woods, especially in old growth. And of course I love the ocean too. I'm usually a positive fellow who tries to be mindful and live in the present. I appreciate the smaller things in life and am just happy to be along for the ride.
