A little bit about me for those who don't know...

I'm 32 and restless. I'm constantly evaluating and re-evaluating my life and options which, for better or for worse, has led me to keep moving and always seek knowledge. I've worked in retail, non-profits (youth-worker), warehouses, and business (human resources) but I think there's more to life. I'll admit I'm a bit non-committal - I cherish my independence and once I start to feel life getting too routine, it's time for a change.

Whatever I do, there must be a resounding purpose to it - I need to help more than harm; if I know better, I do better; stand grounded in my values; and treat myself, other people and the environment with respect. At age 15 I had to contemplate death, fighting lymphoma. I developed an awareness of the meaninglessness of material pursuits when I knew of kids around me dying or facing death. Since then, through a lot of trial and error, I've clarified my values and have found that I'm content with pursuing freedom - on an internal personal level, spiritually, and in a lifestyle sense. Hence Vina & Free.

My only goal at this point is to live the life I want and can be at peace with. I am sharing this path because I think alternate perspectives are needed out in the world for others to live more consciously and to be able to make real choices about their own paths and journeys.

I hope to share some interesting adventures and insights as I go along and I'm happy to receive feedback as well so send me a message if I strike a nerve, good or bad.  🙂

Peace and love,
