About Me:

Philosopher, Dreamer, Sailor, Husband and Father. 

Born and raised in Ohio, I moved to Columbus in the spring of 2000.

 I think that true happiness is found when we make connections with others, and that travel helps us to more easily access what we feel is our authentic self. Alain de Botton writes in The Art of Travel, "Journeys are the midwives of thought. Few places are more conducive to internal conversations than a moving plane, ship or train, [and] at the end of hours of train-dreaming, we may feel we have been returned to ourselves - that is, brought back into contact with emotions and ideas of importance to us."
