. . . I've been a nomad since the moment I was old enough to leave home - with one goal in my head- to see the Pacific Ocean. It was a roundabout and perilous journey to reach that one simple point of geography, but I eventually made it, and have never let the edge of an ocean stop me. I lead a simple life - there are no rules. I try to be kind, and generous and thoughtful. I make mistakes and despite a life led by the motto of "have no regrets" . . . I have many.
I am a free spirit and have lived a life of adventure. I have paraglided off the Carpathian Mountains, scuba dived a glacier lake in Iceland, sat quietly with a silverback gorilla in a volcanic rainforest in Rwanda. I've drank coffee on the Champs-Élysées, gotten drunk in an Irish pub, I've witnessed the famous sunset off Santorini, Greece and spent the night in a farmers barn in the shadow of Dracula's castle in Transylvania. I have fought Klingons alongside the real Captain Kirk. I've ridden a Lipizzaner Stallion, scuba dived with sharks without a cage. Run with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain. I have been a construction worker, landscaper, soldier, mercenary, factory worker, office worker and peace officer. I've hiked the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, driven a jeep across the Serengeti, learned to fly a plane. I have photographed beautiful women, hung out with celebrities in Hollywood, dangled out of helicopters photographing tall ships. I've ridden motorcycles cross-country, jumped out of airplanes and rappelled down waterfalls in distant jungles.
I've lived a full life, I've loved many women, I've had a dog who meant more to me than life itself . . . I am tired, and worn and jaded and see little hope for this world - yet still I push on. There are adventures yet to be had, places I still have not seen . . . stories yet to be told.
