I've traveled to 11 countries overseas. Farthest north North Western coast of Ireland, furthest south was Sinai, Egypt.
Bicycle mechanic for seven years. Residential Electrician for seven years. I'm not all that mechanical I come from a more Philosophical/Psychological/Logical upbringing. I gave all that up to be around a more creative environment. I've been working as a professional actor for almost two years, although acting does not fully support me yet. I can't stand the narcissism of most actors but I do love surrounding myself with filmmakers and visionaries.
I lived as a hermit for two years on an island on the Canadian border. Spent three months in the back country hiking in the Rockies and spent a summer working for the U.S. Forest Service.

I think in the long run happiness comes from the relationship we have with ourselves. The people we ultimately surround ourselves with become reflections of our true self.
“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832)
