Books I'm Writing

I have been writing stories and tales ever since I learned to write. More recently, I sat down and started working on a memoir about my Journey with the Big Blue Bus, as well as a reality bendingTime Travel short story.

The reasons I'm still alive.

This has become an extremely deep and personal account of my journey from slowly dying of manic depression, to fully living in the moment. The people that I surround myself are the key part to my support network, and without them I became worried that I might not live to see tomorrow. Through them I was able to achieve my dreams and goals of living and traveling in a converted School Bus. I am no longer struggling with depression, having found ways of channeling it into positive and healthy outcomes, I thrive of it's energy.

Will you join me on this Bus Journey? Are you ready to love yourself?

i'm getting a roommate

My soon-to-be wife recently quit her job and will be moving from her apartment in Seattle, all the way across America to Florida in order to move into the Big Blue Bus.

This is our journey of starting a completely new life together in The Big Blue Bus.

...and so I walk into the wild

"Don't know where to start describing this wonderful thing called Thru-Hiking the AT. I dont have enough time in these 60 mins (computer alloted time) to describe how wonderful this journey has been, just in a little over a week, and how happy I am to be here. Ecstatic. Words cannot begin to describe my emotional state."

A dear friend of mine converted my online 2009 Thru-Hiking Appalachian Trail Journey into a ISBN-Numbered published book. I was incredibly amazed when she handed me my own published book, I simply could not believe it!
