Life Philosophy

I am never complete. Every day I seek to improve my own life and the lives of others. I will always remain curious and skeptical, facing the world with an open mind and a desire for understanding in all forms.

I am...

One man trying to live the life of a thousand. I’m an explorer and an experimenter, obsessed with the idea of self-improvement. I live for the transcendence of music & comedy and the
feeling of bare feet on bare earth. I enjoy drinking coffee and jumping out of planes.


“A man’s worth is no greater than his ambitions.” -Marcus Aurelius

“Most of the luxuries and many of the so-called comforts of life are not only not indispensable, but positive hindrances to the elevation of mankind.” -Henry David Thoreau

“I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by a conscious endeavor.” – Henry David Thoreau

“We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity.” -H.P. Lovecraft
