A Little About Shea

The question is simple, “who am I?” The stock responses that I am an entrepreneur, author, and adventurer seem to fall  short.

I’m the guy that asks the oddball questions, loves to smile and laugh, and wonders why we get so trapped by our own assumptions. I’m curious about what makes people happy. I love those who head down their own path. I believe that life is meant to be enjoyable, happy, and fulfilling.

I find solace and energy alone in wild places. I love a good conversation as much as I love writing. Today, I’m honestly happy that you visited my website.
