What’s your Childfree Family username?

Sioux Falls, SD

Where do you currently live?

Sioux Falls, SD

Are you childfree by-choice or by-circumstance?


If childfree by-choice, what was your biggest influence?

Seeing my mother struggle to provide for my sister and myself. She worked 2 to 3 jobs at times. I see couples and families fighting quite a bit and I don’t want to be a part of that. I see taking care of a child as way too big of a responsibility for me. I would be so paranoid wondering where my child would be. The stress and the cons to having a child are too large to consider having them. The environment I care about too. I believe we have an overpopulated planet. This planet had 1 billion people in the year of 1860. Now we have gone so much in 160 years. It is scary to see. I wouldn’t bring in a child into that. The population is growing even if the birth rate is going down unfortunately.

Do you have any pets?

My mom has a Shiba Inu named Buster who is a cutie. I have never owned a pet though. I really would be interested in a small dog.

What was your first job?

Host / Bus Boy at Famous Dave’s BBQ

What is your occupation now?

Delivery Driver

What is a typical day like for you?

Wake up at 5:30AM. Go to work at 6:45AM. Work done at 4pm. Go home and exercise after work. Watch some TV shows or sports. Then read a book and go to bed to end the day.

Do you enjoy any hobbies?

Yes, I do. I love history (mainly World War 2 History). I enjoy Astronomy and knowing more about the universe. I stargaze at night when the skies are clear. I have traveled around the USA to attend electronic dance music events. Music is a huge part of my life. I’m a fan of many types of genres of music like classical, metal, new age, oldies, 80s, 90s, happy hardcore, trance, techno.

Do you have a special talent or skill?

I am pretty good at Public Speaking. I can write speeches and write songs well when I put the time in.

If you could master a new skill instantly, what would you like to learn to do?

If I could master a new skill, probably homebuilding or home improvement skills. Create a home for an affordable cost because you can do it all on your own. That would be amazing.  I would love to have had mastered skills in some sports like Tennis or football, then become a pro.

What’s an interesting fact about you?

I went to Tokyo, Japan and London, England in the same year. 9 Hours of flying one-way is my limit before I start going crazy on the plane lol.

Do you have any “stupid human” tricks?

I have good impersonations I think. I can do a good AC/DC singer voice Brian Johnson, Macho Man, and Ernie from Sesame Street. Don’t know why I can do them lol.

Are there any accomplishments you want to brag about? (Don’t be modest, we want to know!)

Radio DJ at age 15 for a college.

Climbed up a 13,000-foot peak in Colorado.

I have been to some pretty awesome raves in my life.

What do you enjoy most about the childfree lifestyle?

The freedom to do anything you want, at any time. You can drop anything on a dime to go after a dream.

Give us your Top Three recommendations for travel destinations that you have visited?

Vancouver, Canada

London, England

Utah (gorgeous and underrated)

Is there a travel spot you REALLY want to visit?

Alberta Canada is beautiful and I want to see it soon.

What do you want people who are not childfree to know about this lifestyle?

You have a choice to not have kids. You are not alone. We have a whole community that is just like you. I thought I was the only person to be childfree. I didn’t know what being childfree was. Then I found out I wasn’t alone after all with my decision not to have kids. Many people from around the world are just like me.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

In Florida, with a paid for house near the ocean. I have always wanted to be near the ocean. That dream is looking like that will be coming true in a few years. I have been saving my money for 5 years and almost have enough for a house now. I worked 6 days a week for over 4 years and that hard work is finally paying off.

Do you want to give a plug for anything?
