Who am I?


Today I am stepping into my new life as a lion tamer.  No really, I am just a Rocket Scientist and a Pilot!  I love- flying, world travel, snowboarding, and pursuing new business ideas.  More simply, I strive to enjoy everyday by building meaningful relationships with the people in my life.  I believe the most important moment is now and the most important person is the one you are with.  I hope that you can find something valuable through my life experiences and findings. I intend to constantly explore life… so come with me!

From this hour I ordain myself loos’d of limits and imaginary lines, Going where I list, my own master total and absolute, Listening to others, considering well what they say, Pausing, searching, receiving, contemplating, Gently, but with undeniable will divesting myself of the holds that would hold me.” ~Walt Whitman, “Song of the Open Road”

Great Blog. I Found it because you left a comment on Tim Ferris Blog. I’m also pusuing business at the moment to achieve financial and time-freedom for the future to do the things I love. Reading about people like you is inspiring and motivating. So thanks for sharing your experiences. I liked your african stories very much. I went to DR Kongo this year for a couple of weeks to work for a non-profit organization. An amazing country. Good luck for you next activities and perhaps sometime I see you in Africa 😉
