Before my years in Mexico… I was born and raised in central Texas. My parents taught me to be a free thinker, open to ‘outside of the box’ ideas, and to be a leader. They were the kind of people who made me take spanish and music lessons as a kid, who thought it was important to travel and to see things from different perspectives. They taught me to accept change embrace technology. To be open to people, welcome them in your home and treat everyone as you want to be treated.
During my high school years I worked as a technical support rep. for two local internet service providers, and worked independently repairing/troubleshooting computer related issues. After high school I attended a small Bible college in Manhattan, Kansas and graduated with a B.S. of Biblical Studies / Marriage and Family Therapy. While in college I began working for University Christian Church as a full-time service coordinator, responsible for event coordination, music and media development. Throughout my career in the church, I held many part-time and temp jobs to keep things interesting. And after eight years of living and working in Kansas, I made my exodus from the mid-west.
Since leaving Kansas, the ride has been wild. Eight countries in Africa, six trips the full length of North America, 18,000 miles of travel by motorcycle, a host of seasonal/temp, non-profit/volunteer experiences and - and now I’m posted up in San Miguel de Allende, GTO, Mexico.
I am one with many hobbies, many interests and I love learning new things. These days I find myself into panoramic photography, making and playing music, leading a healthy lifestyle and physical fitness.
