I grew up in southern California. I began my obsession with world travel at the age of twenty. After visiting a few foreign countries for short few day stints, I realized that I needed more time. This lead me to seek foreign employment in Asia for the past five years. Now, being back in California, my hunger for discovering new places and new people is just as strong as ever, but my wife and I have committed to working here for the next couple of years. Rather than settle back in to the tedium of what our lives once were, we hope to visit more of our own nation and discover the beauty and idiosyncrasies of each state before we once again venture off our continent.
