I am a fish out of water here in my hometown of Saint Petersburg, Florida... During my past few years traveling, my tastes have been refined, my eyes opened, my heart hurt, my mind tuned. I long to be able to say, "I am a citizen of the world," without the laughs of those who don't know.

With that said, I am an average guy who probably knows a little more about life than was intended for a small boy growing up in a Florida suburb, but my opinions and thoughts are keen, I see with the eyes of both an outsider and insider. I can watch a football game or scrutinize a Vuitton show. I can enjoy a glass of imported wine as much as I can let loose with a $20 bottle of vodka. I'm everyone yet invisible. I see but am not there.
