About Me

Update 07/15/16

After four years of teaching in Rio de Janeiro I am on a West Coast motorcycle tour that currently finds me in California. Big Sur is on the next stop list then probably head back north along the 1. Bend, Portland, Seattle, Vancouver before heading East into the Rockies.

Hoping to meet some great folks along the way and maybe a couch or two. I have camping gear as well so a small patch of land also works.

I owned a hostel on the ecuadorian coast for one year, a small town called Montanita. I quit my job and sold all my possessions and moved to Ecuador to run the business. That was kind of amazing to me
