I am a firm believer that life must be lived in an interesting fashion. To fill in the particulars of what this might mean to the reader are presumptuous at best. For me, this means living in a constant state of motion if not outright geographical movement. I’m born and raised all over the Upper Midwest of the United States, and there’s no place I’d rather be from. From an early age though, I was extremely conscious to the idea that there is a much larger world than Michigan and Chicago and Minnesota.
I will pick up and move at the drop of a hat or the rumor of an adventure, as the case may be. Settling into a new scene is nearly as fun as being a local, and within a few months, I feel the urge to get back on the Road, to move once again. As the weather grows cold in a particular place, I am constantly reminded that on the other side of the world, spring is just beginning. Coming from the center of a rather large continent, I absolutely adore the ocean in only a way that a tourist can.
Over the last few years, I’ve been a student, a factory worker, a lab chemist, a Teamster, a writer, a hobo, an apple picker, a hostel worker, a lover, and a friend. Throughout it all, I’ve been an observer. With a keen sense of voice and reflection, and also with a nose for the weird. I love basketball and Mexican food, late nights partying and looking for that pixie of my own. Late nights spent typing hold a special place in my heart. As does blue collar punk rock and underground hip hop. I fiercely adore anything creative and original. I probably drink too much. This doesn’t really bother me. Thank you for reading.
