Life is just beginning . . .

I am pursuing a degree in business administration with a specialization in small business management. I'm in the process of opening my own internet based travel agency which will be able to not only provide more persnalized service but also cater to the more adventurous traveller looking to explore the frontiers of the world which are becoming fewer and further between.

Obviously, I love to travel both in the United States and abroad. I've jut always had such a passion for the treasures we have not only as Americans or Europeans or African but as a human race. I cannot see living my entire life and only seeing what one state or one region or even one country has to offer. If you're seeking something, it's out there somewhere.

I love to read - I'm on a horror kick right now but I also love fantasy, sci-fi, historical fiction, and even just plain old mainstream fiction. I also love to write especially with themes revolving around fantasy and family dynamics.

I am a huge proponent of mental illness reform. I have personal experience with living with mental illness and I believe that the current system is in shambles.

I love the outdoors and enjoy activities such as camping, swimming, bicycling, hiking, and boating.

I am trying to beat the battle of the bulge. That's a lifetime battle right there but I am currently trying to eat more natural and nutritious foods and look at food as fuel and not as a comfort thing or even a social thing . . .

I like movies and music with the only prerequisite being that the have a good story to them.

I am a spiritual person and I guess you could say I have pagan leanings but I don't particularly identify with one specific religion. I think they all have a lot to teach the world and in a lot of ways it is the same lessons presented in different ways.

You could call me liberal in my beliefs but I take a common sense approach to most political issues and am definitely non-partisan and try to support whoever is making a difference regardless of party lines.

I have a great love of history and think it provides some of the very best stories. There is such a richness to the history of mankind and seeing how it all awkwardly fits together the paint a perfectly clear picture of how we got where we are today. For better or for worse.

Please feel free to add me as a friend or send me a message.

All my love,
