Hey! I'm a laid back guy who loves to play/write music, read, rock climb, hike, do hands on work, and talk about existence around the campfire. I enjoy people who like to smile and celebrate life. I'm not a big talker in groups as I prefer to just listen and observe and laugh, but one on one I enjoy engaging in any kind of conversation.
I usually see the best in people and I really enjoy listening to others and learning how they see the world. I'm very open minded and I usually get along with most people.
Current Location: Denver, Colorado

I am currently working full time in Denver, CO as a web developer/designer.
By summer of next year, I am hoping to have saved enough money to buy a van and do a camper van conversion. Once I have this built plus some extra savings, I plan to hit the road and live nomadically across the U.S. and Canada for as long as I can through occasional paid freelance work and help exchange opportunities. So right now I am unavailable, but please reach out if you think we might make a good fit for an exchange in the future or if you are interested in my camper van plans!
