For years, I dreamed of traveling the world. I would watch Braveheart and imagine running across the Scottish Highlands, read Cryptonomicon and fantasize exploring the Philippines, or read endless travel blogs and compile a bucket list of my own. But it wasn’t until 2014 when I made the leap, put my life in a backpack and started my endless journey. I am always looking for another adventure and enjoy the wild side of things. If you ask me where I’m from, I’ll just say “Earth.”
I have done numerous jobs in my life, including computer programming, data entry, teaching, construction, consulting, cooking, event production, rigging, landscaping, writing and counselling. I’ve also been trained in graphic design, interior design, finance, marketing, carpentry and many other subjects.
I love to help people, meet new friends, discover new locations and fun things to do, travel, and experience new things. And above all, I enjoy helping others do all of the above. Some of my hobbies include traveling, reading (I try to read a novel a week), graphic design, writing, traveling, sports and running, the occasional mobile game (I know it’s a waste of time, but what the heck), hiking, spelunking, watching a movie now and then, doing puzzles and traveling.

My plans for the future are to travel around the world indefinitely, visit every country, meet tons of new people, learn at least half a dozen new languages, help friends and strangers in any way I can and discover wonderful locations. I plan to eat as many diversified meals as I can and I have an ever expanding bucket list of things I want to do in my travels.
