I have been making trips around the sun for quite a few years now, coming full circle to a place where I can pursue my spiritual and personal growth to be the best person I can be, and occasionally failing that at least respect all the life around me with the gratitude I have for the opportunity to be here in this life to experience the wonders of the cosmos. Before now I have been a professional bicycle wrench, a cook, lawncare weedeater, a soldier, concrete construction laborer, farm worker, and even worked in a carwash once upon a time. On the side I like to write, draw, and paint. I even have visions of grandeur, where someday, I can maybe make a living from my art.



I have lived all over North America, and Europe, traveled over a good sized chunk of the planet, and for now anyway, am making Cuenca, Ecuador my home, working with the plant medicines, occasionally doing work exchange at Gaia Sagrada Retreat Center (where all you Norte Americanos should be taking your vacations and learning to wake-up and leave the Matrix behind - it'll help alleviate all those pain-in-the- Trump problems you might be experiencing;-), and painting.
