“…cultures to imbibe, dances to be elegantly inhaled, people to be revered, life to be lived vibrantly…”

I am a lifelong resident of Salem, Oregon, but am usually found elsewhere.

My interests include travel, traveling, being a traveler, cycling, creating lifelong interpersonal relationships through life itself and CouchSurfing.org, producing videos, teaching Spanish, teaching English, playing outdoors, raising awareness and funds for those with Multiple Sclerosis, gardening, and traveling.

I actively blog about my adventures in my small town and my adventures abroad: rosebark.com.
