I'm a creative professional (visual artist/video editor/producer). I am active and enjoy outdoor activities. I appreciate learning about other cultures, and I love meeting other travelers and sharing stories.
I'm usually quiet, introspective, and a bit of a health nut, but there are always exceptions. I consider myself to be an optimist, open-minded, and I'm always curious to learn new things. I love walking long distances in new places and soaking in the atmosphere.
Favorite travel experiences (so far) include: studying and backpacking through Europe, trail running in Sedona, and learning to surf in La Jolla.
On my travel bucket list: climbing Machu Picchu, attending surf camp in Costa Rica, getting SCUBA certified, experiencing Niagara Falls, and going on a Buddhist pilgrimage in Asia! (just to name a few).
favorite books: non-fiction (Eckhart Tolle, etc...)
favorite movies: "Strictly Ballroom,""SoapDish," Korean film-"Castaway on the Moon," "Ocean's 11," "Eternal Sunshine...," "Cinema Paradiso," "Inception."
favorite TV: "Leverage," "Portlandia,"
Life mottos: "Laughter is the difference between a long happy life, and a short miserable one."
"Luck is when preparation meets opportunity."
"Always listen to your intuition. There is no greater gift than clarity."
