I love traveling, adventure, bike touring, snow shoeing, skiing, surfing, beach volleyball, VW Vanagons, Westfalias, camping, photography, music, writing songs, videography, and more! I'm interested in just about anything that is creative and/or outdoors! I also love meeting new people and learning about their favorite places. If you ever want to know where to go, what to see, and where to eat in Santa Cruz, be sure to drop me a note! If you ever want to share a place I MUST SEE, you should also drop me a note!
Outside of traveling, I have worked as an algebra teacher, landscaper, commercial painter, credit union teller, and more! These days I work for AirBNB as a photographer part time as well as write and record songs for TV, Movies, and my own albums. Definitely both pursuits of passion, I have become an expert at stretching every dollar as far as it can go! Also, I need to practice my Spanish so feel free to test me! :)
One of the cheapest (and most fun) ways I've found to travel is bicycle touring! I'll be riding my bike from Canada to Mexico down the Pacific Coast from September through Novermber so if you want to grab a coffee, share a story, or ride part of a day with me, be sure to contact me!
See you on the road!!!
