About Me


to experience life in all it's beauty..


~i am a scorpio fire tiger.

i don't really like describing myself, but i love music, art, nature, people, life in general, experiencing things, learning things, having fun, and always live for the truth. but you can find out more in person. ;)


life is beautiful.

~revel in the moment

"everything dies baby that's a fact, but maybe everything that dies someday comes back" - springsteen

"what is the feeling when you're driving away from people, and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? -it's the too huge world vaulting us, and it's good-bye. but we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies." - jack kerouac

One Amazing Thing I've Done

i've been lucky enough to see lots and lots of amazing live music.

i was one of the first 50 people to raft down a (at the time) newly legalized portion of the savegre river in costa rica.

i have seen pain, beauty, happiness, apprehension, elation, sorrow, laughter, decadence, fear, hatred, regret, love, and many more things that make human nature fascinating.

Teach, Learn, Share

we will do this together.

but one thing i can definitely teach you: how to take a picture with my old skool 35mm camera (aka my love).
