About Me

I am an eccentric armchair philosopher. I read, write, play, sing, and create. I want to build my own house someday and grow a garden in the back-yard. I live with my girlfriend in Eugene, OR and in the process of planning a cross-country bike trip. :)

Favorite Quotes

“I think that, I do believe, that that’s when you do your soul searching, I think when you have these trials that life gives you it is an opportunity to find out who you are. Not just who you are when everything’s great but who are you when everything’s taken away from you.” – Ellen Degeneres

“A man’s ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties and needs; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death.” – Albert Einstein
