I am a merchant marine based out of Portland, OR. I am an engineer and I dig it.

I went to Tongue Point Job Corps Center in Astoria, OR and earned my AB/QMED.

I spend half my time at work, and the other half trying to figure out what to do when I'm not working.

I'm trying to live life. I don't want to grow old and realize that I never did anything. Not in a YOLO way, because that's just an acronym for people who want an excuse to be reckless.

Trying to discover the world and myself every day. Perhaps I will understand one or both someday.

My ultimate goal is to find genuine, inner peace. Happiness comes from within.

I can't figure out how to edit the links below... I haven't been on here for a long time. I would still put maritime stuff though.
