About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Working and traveling around Australia!

ABOUT ME

I was born and raised in miami florida. When I turned 18 I moved to Colorado for school and promptly dropped out to pursue my dream of becoming a wildland firefighter. Have now fought fires in California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, and New Mexico, Wyoming, and Utah.

In 2016 I took a leave of absence and decided to do a year of travel... And we'll it's just turned into a grand adventure, which has now landed me in Australia!

I'm into adventures of all kinds and meeting new people and trying new things. I like doing anything in the outdoors but also love exploring cities and seeing live music and visiting the local hang outs.

I've learned early in life that you can't get what you want without going after it, if you dont ask the answer is always no, and happiness is the meaning of life.

PHILOSOPHY

Live and let live

There are no such things as strangers, only future friends

You see things; and you say: "Why?" But I dream things that never were; and I say: "Why not?"
-G.B Shaw.

A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and goes to bed at night and in between does what he wants to do.
-Bob Dylan

"Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!
-Hunter S. Thompson
