The Blog

In writing this blog I hope to share my experiences, thoughts, and general life with friends, family, and strangers a like. Topics I’ll cover are life updates, minimalism, adventures, and what I call “Black Coffee Philosophy”, the big thoughts I have over a cup of coffee by myself or with others.


I will be updating weekly on Mondays at 9:30am. Hopefully with more to come in the future.
