Born in California's Central Valley, I grew up scouting out what the surrounding landscape has to offer. I have traveled all across this glorious state, picking up nuggets of insight, culture, and what it means to have true grit. As a skilled Barista and Roaster for a local coffee shop, I really enjoy slingin' espresso shots and bringing a cup of perfectly crafted caffeine-deliciousness to the town's customers. Aside from coffee, I have a deep passion for writing and creating. My recent endeavor has been to share my writings and stories in hopes that they will inspire, harmonize, educate, and encourage those that read them.
On my days off, I'm likely out on some adventure – be it exploring the backcountry in the nearby Sequoia National Park, road-tripping with buddies, or cruising through country roads, enjoying the uninhabited hillsides, until I reach the coastline to hunt for coves and sea caves that are calling my name. Though not all adventures are on such a large scale. Sometimes adventures are found in the small things too: like cozying up with a good book that takes my mind away from reality, or sharing a laugh and a good meal with the people that matter most.
Whatever your adventure is, I want to tell you this:
Don't be afraid to get out there and experience something new. Explore. Create. Share. And love one another.
