On a typical friday night you might find me in the diviest of bars…sipping on the manliest of drinks, staring down the competition…
standing up tall, walking with fierce determination to the stage…
....to bust out the manliest version of “A Whole New World”. If you’re lucky, you get to be my jasmine!
I grew up in a small town in Mid Michigan and after college headed west to Colorado followed my dreams to Santa Monica, California then back to Colorado...then San Diego...now back to Grand Rapids! Sheesh...got that straight? Good, there will be a quiz later :-)
BTW...if you're a judgmental person in any way, we probably won't get along. Sorry!

5 Things I couldn’t Live Without:

Either a kindle or a book

Experiencing a new town, city, or country as often as humanly possible
Why Do I Say I can’t live without discovering new places?
I get so much out of discovering new places. Every single time I feel alive. When I step into the airport, train station, or even bus station when others would feel overwhelmed or beleagered I feel invigorated.
I get excited even if I’m driving to one town over. New people, new sights, new sounds, new culture, secret dive bars and cafes that have hidden treasures of amazing people, adventures, stories, delicious food you’ll never have anywhere else. That’s Why!
