About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To humbly Learn as much as I can and stay funky throughout my travels.

ABOUT ME

Oh, man...where to start well I'm a poet, a skateboarder, a traveler of physical and ideological boarders, bridging gaps and looking for a historically sensitive and cosmopolitan way of life while staying mindful of the Colonial nature of the Modern world. I love learning hands on, mind open, constantly growing, and remaining not too fashionably jaded.

I had a homestay in South Africa in 2008 for a month, they were great people. I still stay in contact. We didn't get hang out too much other than play pool and get into trouble...heh... I remember this one time John myself and three of his friends went out to play pool afterwards one his friends ripped down the electrified fences on a nearby textile factory, the cops came up behind but we didn't know if he saw what happened so we played it cool, the cops put us all in the back and closed the door, homeboy tried to bail out the back of the truck he was so scared.....
