Dad is japanese. Mom is german. The blood that runs through my veins at one time tried to take over the world.
I believe in a life of simplicity spent outdoors. All while doing your best to live an honest life, Beyond the gear/tools that I need to enjoy a life outdoors, my life is not an accumulation of possessions.
My life is not lived “in a box”. Both literally and philosophically.

A solo run that I had begun planning just before the summer of 2015. A half-mile loop for 72hrs that would go on to benefit the American Cancer Society and Road Warriors Corp 501c3. A humbling experience in which the running community local and beyond came together, supported, volunteered, and ran. Many local and national companies came through to sponsor the event including Half Moon Outfitters, Tailwind Nutrition, Dirtbag Runners, and Luna Sandals. | Post & Courier (Article Link) | Road Warriors 501c3 (Link)

I want to convince you that you must learn to make every act count, since you are going to be here for only a short while, in fact, too short for witnessing all the marvels of it.” Carlos Castaneda
