Tell us a bit about yourself?
I am a native Southern Californian and I really love the variety found in the outdoors. Another interest of mine is, not surprisingly, going on roadtrips. Hitting the road is something I’ve been able to do in a variety of countries around the world including Asia, Europe, and Australia. All the friendships and experiences I have made as a result mean so much to me.
Why did you want to be a Roadtrip roadie?
A big reason why I wanted to become a Roadtrip Roadie is because I support the cause of Roadtrip Nation. It is important for me to care about the work I am doing. Another reason is because it will give me the chance to inspire people to get out of the classroom and learn about possibilities that may never have occurred to them before.
Favorite Roadtrip Nation Leader quote:
“If everything is characterized in your life as risk versus safety… I mean the human instinct is to choose safety. But if you use a whole different standard for evaluating your life, like, necessary versus unnecessary… Happiness is necessary. Passion is necessary. Love is necessary. For me, it was just changing the way that one evaluates one’s life and taking the whole idea of security out of the equation.” – Jonathan Poneman
