I am a traveler, a writer, a daily adventurer, and an avid self educator hailing from a small town in Kansas. I have traveled the country by car, train, airplane, thumb, boat, and motorcycle in an effort to better myself and to better understand the world that I live in. I'm an avid reader of all things from science fiction to National Geographic, a lover of short films, and I have kept a journal on all of these things from a very young age. I write poetry, short stories, and essays in my downtime, and will someday (soon?) attempt to publish. I enjoy photography as well, and while I am not by any means a professional, the art is not lost on me as a way to document the people, places, and things in our daily lives for future generations to enjoy.
