About Me

My name is RJ and I am 29 years old but that is relative isn't it? I spent my early youth tramping around like an 'ol time hobo--first touring with the Grateful Dead
then just touring through life.
I had a spiritul awakening that really started early on in my life but actually only surfaced this past year. I discovered the illusion of separateness that we are all living under...but more about this later.

I grew up in central New Jersey and spent a large portion of my youth educating myself about life, on the streets of New York City. I despise living in suburbia and if I can't afford a decent place in Manhattan then a scenic mountain top is my only other choice.
I've been fortunate enough to have travelled a bit and I've visited much of the United States, Mexico, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Panama, San Andres, Amsterdam and France.
I love camping, backpacking, Bluegrass Festivals,and I have many hobbies, not the least of which is photography.
