About Me


To go everywhere!


I am awesome. Bradley is too. we have three, awesome cats, if you have a cat allergy this is not the couch for you.

I was (very) un-traditionally, home un-schooled we called it.
My brother and I spent our days playing in the woods, inventing games, playing sports...etc
Our parents encouraged us in any endeavor we found of interest.
I wouldn't change my upbringing for anything.

I love to play games, card, board, whatever, I'll totally play a game with you.

I worked at Bell's Brewery for 4 great years until they made some bad decisions and I decided to pursue some kitchen management opportunities elsewhere for several years. Now I work for myself, doing art/craft shows, making stuff and selling stuff!


Fire is hot.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Rock climbing with the New Zealand army trainees who picked me up (hitching), let me stay at their leave center and took me out on the town, yea New Zealand!

I was in Chile during the huge earthquake (in Constitución), I was farther south but it was intense enough there, the sensation of the ground under your feet moving like waves and watching everything sway was unreal.

Teach, Learn, Share

Cooking, sewing, marksman principals, photography, fencing, jewelry making, etc...I know a little bit about a lot of things.

Argentina, Canada, Chile, Costa Rica, Mexico, New Zealand, United States
