Life

I travel across North America in a motorhome and have lived and worked in 7 different US states including Hawaii, Colorado, and California and 3 different countries including Jamaica and Costa Rica. My life is a story that is still unfolding.

I’ll be posting articles about my adventures, successes, failures, and rants and hope that it somehow helps others to find some light in their own path in life.
