My name is Sebastian and I'm a native from the mountains of Colombia where I lived my first 10 years. Growing up in the midst of the Andes Mts. (Bogota), I became alive to the vastness and infinite beauty of what we call nature at a very young age. I've since been curious to death about our relationship to nature as a species, and especially our curious disconnection with it. I'm a fanatic of perception - of awareness - of mindfulness - of being and experiencing the truthful core of our selves as it relates to nature and our interactions with each other. I'm also a big fan of literature - I studied English at Augustana College in Rock Island, IL, along with Environmental Studies and Music. I guess I should also mention that I breathe music - I play classical guitar and absolutely love - LOVE - to play anything and everything, especially with others. I currently live in Oak Brook, a western suburb of Chicago, where I live for a living. Thoreau and Emmerson are my boys - they keep me company and make me feel safe whenever I'm feeling down. I love experiencing life - it's so baffling it's pretty nuts.
