Life Philosophy

To enlighten and to be enlightened.

I am...

Irish, Scandinavian, German, Minnesotan, an unsuccessful musician, author, current college dropout, trying to improve my body, mind and soul, become self-sufficient and looking to attain as much knowledge and wisdom as possible. I enjoy nature, extreme sports (particularly snowboarding, biking, XC-skiing, ping pong lol, canoeing, camping, hiking), chess, and the company of others.
