About Me

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.

    Good articles,

    I have also given up on t.v., complete waste of time.

    Keep up the good work!
