My greatest joy is found in the ones I cherish the most. No matter if it's at a taco truck at 2 in the morning or hiking up half dome in Yosemite National Park. I am a man who seeks after adventure with a community to embrace it with.

Here are 5 things I can not live without.
1.) Eyes- To witness mother nature's beautiful wonder.
2.) Legs- To hike along trails, valleys and mountain ranges.
3.) Arms- To hug longtime family and friends.
4.) Laughter- Come on, who can live without laughter?
5.) Passion- To live life without it, will make life meaningless.

I haven't had the opportunity to travel many places as of yet, but thus far the place that I've enjoyed the most has got to be Cambodia. To step out of that plane and enter into a whole new world unlike my own has been an adventure of a lifetime. No only had it been an experience full of adventure, but one that has refined and reshaped my character, forever. To witness life in a new perspective. To witness life in such a humbling way. The experience was heartwarming and heartbreaking all at the same time.

One of my favorite books is titled, Wild at Heart by John Eldredge. It's a story of a man in search for his soul. A man who had so much become a slave to the corporate world that he had forgotten what it meant to be a man. As he searched for answers, he realized it was that thirst for adventure that he'd been longing for all that time. It wasn't until that thirst was quenched when he understood the true essence of what it meant to be a man.

I mentioned before that I can not live without laughter, so it would only seem natural that I would enjoy an entertaining night at a comedy show. I had the privilege to witness the best of Mike Epps, Dave Chapell and Aries Spears just to name a few. Speaking of a few, I probably lost a few pounds due to laughter, as well!

When I was young, hip hop was the only thing I listened to. Seriously. But as I grew older, my appreciation for all genres of music began to grow. Artists such as Stevie Nicks, Marvin Gaye, Bob Marley and so much more. Music is art and art expresses an emotion. I love the way music makes you feel!

Now with food, it's very simple. If it smells good, chances are I will probably eat it. Thank goodness I'm not picky.

I have not yet opened my home or stayed at another as a guest while traveling, but I am very interested in exploring this as an option on my next traveling endeavor!

This is my life motto:
Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.
Not settling for last, only aiming for first.
Knowing it's all worth it, even if it hurts.
