I imagine a world where individuals find deep fulfillment through accepting full responsibility for their lives and the contribution of things that are meaningful for people who care. I envision integrated societies living harmoniously through intelligent communication and mutually beneficial relationships.

I am an optimist at heart with notes of skeptisism. Things I enjoy practicing are writing, photography, videography, cheffing, and especially ... my podcast!

My primary project, motivating manifesto and inspired vision in this world is to, “Live Wild, Love Honestly, Die Wise." My life mission is to, “Raise the bar for humanity and recreate paradise for the whole life community."

I was born and raised in Portland Oregon. The tall trees and lush green of the Pacific Northwest is a diverse wilderness landscape that played a major role in shaping me into who I am. I left the institutionalized miseducation system early in exchange for the public library and study of music. I endured an abusive relationship with sugar, tobacco, and alchohol for my whole life until I decided to transcend the albatross of addictions in the Spring of 2018.

One of the most trascendent experiences I've had was August 21st 2017 seeing the Total Solar Eclipse. This phenomenon made a major impression on me, and inspired me to interface with the world in a whole new way. For the rest of my life, I will travel the world to bear faithful witness to every TSE. The next one is on July 2nd in southern Argentina.

I’m an "Umbraphile": one who loves being cast under the darkness, mystery, and majesty of the shadow, and will travel the world with the desire to be graced, and humbled by it once more. It is truly an honor, and pleasure beyond measure, to dwell in the magnificence of the divine creators generosity.
