I'm a free spirit exploring this beautiful existence. I'm curious and interested in basically everything
can be known. I'm a co-creator I love to create, build and discover. As a landscape architect I'm constantly
learning how to play with the elements and one of my passions to make the world around us a better and
greener place. Passionate about education, grow your own food farming, alternative building materials,
alternative power sources. I'm a creative person who loves to create and be surrounded by beauty...whether
in nature or within a peaceful home or garden. My spirituality is woven into every part of my life...I'm a deep
person, but down to earth with a love of laughter and silliness. I love to connect authentically with people and
I value close relationships. I'm very intuitive and introspective,communicative, sensual, bright, and creative in
a myriad of ways. I am strong yet very sensitive and appreciate the connection between the two.
I am most passionate about sharing my gifts at this time in my life. I will start with the goal of this.
The ultimate goal is Better life. We all want it. I know how to get it. I feel like I have the power. The power
to make a choice. The real power to make things differently to do things my way. To make things happen.
To pull things out of my imagination and turn them into a reality. I am here and ready. So here it is giving the
world a chance to have a little laugh.
This is not an attempt to fix the world. I am not here to try and provide a solution to all mankind suffering.
This is an attempt to fix my world and make it a lot happier place to be.
I am a dreamer and a philosopher. I over explain and overdo things. It is my nature to try harder and do more.
It is however great when the try harder bit is aimed at entertainment and having more fun in life, having a
better life in general
