My name is Curtis. I am 30 years old and from Tampa Bay, Florida. In my adult life, I’ve always worked in the service industry, and loved it. It’s an honest living and it afforded me the opportunity to make people happy every day.
I do have a degree in Political Science, but have never “used” it, according to my resume. I didn’t go to school to get a career, I went to get an education- a broad one, that incorporated the need to understand a lot of things together. Social constructs, technology, culture, politics, the economy, international relations, sustainability, history, etc. I went to college to be a more well-rounded person. A more understanding person. And in that sense, I’ve gotten a lot of use out of my degree, and I even keep that slightly crumpled piece of paper they gave me, somewhere. I’ll throw it away when I’m done paying for it.
Service has always been something I’ve clung to, because it gives me value. Value has always been more important to me than worth- Worth is a double-edged sword, whereas value can only be from zero to positive. And the positive is limitless.
Now I’ve decided to expand my value. I’m getting out of the rat-race and heading West. I will be stopping in various towns and cities, national parks, and campgrounds. And I’ll be cleaning.
The one thing that affects everything I have learned, all the people I love, and all the beauty around me, is the health of our planet. In this age, environmental consciousness and sustainability absolutely must be at the forefront of our collective thought as the sentient curators of this planet. Most people understand that concept. And most people are waiting for everyone else to do something about it.
I volunteer.
I have sold/given away most of my belongings. Everything I own now fits in the trunk of my car. Clothes, supplies, tools, and equipment. I’m hitting the road. And I’m going to do my best to make a difference, to make the world a little nicer, and to show that a person’s value isn’t decided by their bank account, but by the beauty they create.

Goals
6 of 300 patrons
When I get to 300 Planeteers, I aim to buy a 360 camera and start doing Virtual Reality documentation of anything/everything environmental! This includes cleanups, protests, legislative gatherings, you name it! No literally, you will name it- tell me what issue is important to you, and I'll tailor my destinations! With our powers combined, we can make a difference!
