My partner Aimee and I enjoy listening to Electronic Dance Music and attending festivals accross the country. I am passionate about Biohacking the body and frequently practice activities like fasting, ice baths, meditation and breathwork. On a deeper level I sense it is my purpose here on Earth to contribute towards making the planet a more positive, balanced and healthier place for everyone here to live in. Oh and Coconuts are my favorite fruitšŸ„„!
