Are you full of fun-facts and constantly do web searches on mundane and even ridiculous things? No? Oh, then maybe it’s just me. I am constantly learning about and researching subjects that provide for interesting conversation, but no real self-development. Until recently, I have been OK with that. It has always been my goal in life to learn and do as much as I can. I’ve always wanted to be the old man with all the crazy stories. In my short life, I have experienced many personal victories and losses. I have traveled the world a bit and have even done a combat tour in Afghanistan with the Marine Corps. I’ve been in love. I’ve been crushed. I am an artist, musician, poet, singer, songwriter, endurance athlete, graphic designer, sailboat skipper, runner, cyclist, gardener, electronics technician, a son, a brother, and a friend. I have bought myself every toy, machine, and electronics device any man could ever want.
With all this, I feel empty. I have learned that it is not what you have that makes you a valuable human being, but instead what you can do without. I feel that material possessions, television, media, advertising, politics, capitalism, floods of information, and over-stimulation have affected my life negatively. My goal is to return to my creative roots and detach myself from the mainstream. I crave mobility and search for clarity. This is my path and my story.
