More About Me

"Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, 'Wow! What a ride!'" - Hunter S. Thompson

I stole that quote from a really good buddy of mine who introduced me to the world of salsa dancing when I was stationed in Monterrey, California a few years ago. One day I got tired of messing around just wishing I could dance and dove headfirst into some classes at DanceFX here in Athens. i love that it's a skill I can take to any new city and meet people with. I'm a Sergeant in the Georgia Army National Guard, and I serve with some of the finest men and women I have ever met. When I'm not dancing, I'm trying to master new languages or studying my butt off so I can make it into medical school some day.
