About me and why I created this blog

Growing up a beach rat in Neptune Beach, Florida, I developed an urge to see the world after watching countless movies of the best surfers in the world shredding perfect waves in exotic locations all over the world. My first surf trip outside the United States was to Costa Rica in 2004, just a couple of months after graduating from high school. In 2009, 9 months after graduating from the University of Florida with a degree in business I moved to Honolulu, Hawaii where I lived for 4-1/2 years.

In Hawaii I sold construction supplies and managed a small store for a large corporation. The corporate life was stressful and I grew tired of the hours and monthly quotas. Knowing my passion did not meet the level of commitment required to be successful I decided to do something I’m passionate about. I’m passionate about traveling and learning about the world so I figured teaching English would provide me with opportunities to do both. Currently, I am living in Thailand and searching for my first English teaching job.

None of us know what reality is but we all have our own unique perceptions and expectations. At the time of writing this I have been to 9 different countries outside the U.S. The purpose of this blog is to share with you how I look at the world. My aim is to entertain, inspire, and make you think. I fully expect you to disagree with me on most matters, but if I made you laugh or made you think then my blog was worth the time it took express my thoughts on a readable format. Please leave feedback positive or negative. Mahalo…
