- Visionary: I want to educate an ARMY... a generation of well-networked self-funded, deeply moral, revolutionaries.
I'm an artist, an educator, a philosopher... I create art that provides children with a 21st century education based on an Integral perspective and a bad-ass ethic of revolutionary responsibility.
Travel puts wind beneath the mercurial wings of my mind. Every now and then I meet a woman who stokes the fires of inspiration deep in my heart. But mostly, I find myself watching the wheels go around in this world without much affect, maybe some mild resentment for the way this country's been hi-jacked... but in the end, I'm just looking forward to waking up from the dream.
I like nature, adventure, music & travel ...and especially meeting cool people who share my outlook on life. It's a rare find, but when I do, it's usually a friends for life type of deal.

"There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root" ~Henry David Thoreau
"This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish selfish clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no ‘brief candle' to me. It is sort of a splendid torch which I have a hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it over to future generations." ~George Bernard Shaw
“Live your life each day as you would climb a mountain. An occasional glance toward the summit keeps the goal in mind, but many beautiful scenes are to be observed from each new vantage point. Climb slowly, steadily, enjoying each passing moment; and the view from the summit will serve as a fitting climax for the journey.” ~Harold V. Melchert
"the most valuable teaching of all — that the dragon's fire is ultimately indistinguishable from the treasure it protects, that the gatekeeper is actually the gateway. Right there in the heart of our pain are the very lessons that we most need to grow." ~Jeff Brown
"Don't hesitate: get laid, that's wisdom. Sitting around chanting... what crap." ~Ikkyu (15th Century Zen Master)
