Some of the things that make me tick
An experienced backpacker, I love the depth and profoundness of wilderness. For me it is a conduit for self-exploration and my primary connection to my own spiritual path. Navigating back to basics puts a lot into perspective.
Nothing beats a good book for getting lost in another world. I’ve always felt this. I mean, my first screen name was lotsabooks and I used to walk to school reading! Now sometimes I miss my stop on the train because of it. I devote an entire section of this website to sharing what I’m reading.
Finding meaning, exploring spirituality, figuring myself out, existing. Sometimes I get distracted from this journey but I’m serious about self-development. Maybe I think self-actualization is key to improving the world.
As a former college tennis player and an avid fan of the Washington Nationals, Baltimore Ravens, and the Dutch national soccer team, sports is a life-long passion. I love competition and I respect what the game teaches us.
