There are many ways to describe a human, especially in an individualistic sense. We spend the majority of our lives soaking up knowledge like a sponge and I suppose this is the part where I'm to introduce my individuality based off the life I've chosen or been led to lead. Hello, I'm an adventurer, generally speaking.
In the wake of my existence I've come to enjoy the whole hearted nature of the Earth, people and stories we endure. These passions derive from countless life changing events that have occurred over the last 8 years. Beginning at the tender age of 14, my life trajectory was cultivated from being run over by a car, shattering my spine and being threatened with the idea I'd never walk again. I've been blessed to see my family every day through my recovery thanks to the Beacon House organization which led me to the inescapable reality of our impermanent lifetime. I've ridden a unicycle across the US and raised over $30,000 for the organization, that then propelled me into a quest of discovery and self discipline through living my absolute hardest life.
Someday I'd like to achieve the feat of becoming my happiest and highest self, although I believe we'll never be perfect, but can always be better. It's important for me to spend the valuable and limited time we have on Earth, to share a positive message and spread the love I'm shown through documenting my journeys and characterizing my experiences into writing.
As of 3-2-2023 I am 255 days, 3,400 miles into a solo canoe voyage beginning at the headwaters of the Mississippi River in Lake Itasca, Minnesota to the Florida Keys. I am paddling the length of the East Coast to New York from Florida on an on-going expedition to raise awareness, share my experiences and document the real world.

If you'd care to support the journey, I have a 'Buy Me A Meal' fund that goes to pay for the meals that me and a kitten I rescued in New Orleans will enjoy.
I have also left the donation link for the Beacon House up, as giving back to them was a huge part of my life for the last two years of traveling.
This is my personal fund for my kitten and I to eat every day. Money sent to me goes towards food, travel expenses and helps keep the documentation running for months to come.
Giving back to the Beacon House was an deeply meaningful part of my young life. After two years of traveling I feel that we've made an incredible impact. This link will take you to their organization's website.
