I love adventure and I always have.

When you grow up at a trailer park in a town called Jenks, America where the biggest excitements were walking to the local Wal-Mart, visiting Polecat Creek or simply catching a ride to the mall in Tulsa, you tend to get wanderlust.

Adventure has gotten me where I am and made me who I am today. How is this for an early mix: I started break dancing in the 80's then served as an 0331 in the United States Marine Corps. Moved to Florida in the 90's for massage therapy school as a profession to get me through college and then used my degree for planning events and for building teams.

I have found that adventure has always been around every corner. Maybe that is why work is still play, for a living? I own a company called originovel llc (original and novel smashed together).

There is always an element of the new and the unknown in my life, work and travels. I do plan for it to stay that way. I simply love being adventurous, creative and eclectic!

One of my favorite quotes is by an adventure cyclist named Willie Weir. 

Willie says "...trips are planned, adventure is what happens when a plan takes a detour." 

I totally agree. This is the essence of why I designed my first book to be a treasure hunt (COWBOY, solved in 2020). It's an adventure that could not possibly be planned, or duplicated. 

Creative always, competitive frequently, and a little crazy on occasion, that's me. Maybe I'll see you out there on some path less traveled; on a detour.

Cheers!
