I was born and raised on the west coast of North America.  My first international trip was at the age of 6 months to Fiji Islands.  I've lived in Fiji Islands, U.K., USA and Canada.  As of 2015, I have visited over 32 countries and spending most of 2016 traveling.  When I travel I like to get to know how people live their day to day lives, get to know the culture. I want to get to know people instead of just taking pictures of sights.

My philosophy in life is always try something once, fear is not an option.  This includes adrenaline sports, meeting new people, making yourself venerable and seeking self-growth.  I'm a Vipassana mediator for the last 12 years, which changed my life radically over the years.  If you are interested in learning more about Vipassana, check out www.dhamma.org.

In my spare time, I support educational and environmental organizations.
