Who I Am  

A Little About Me

Although I have many interests from chess to music, what inspires me most is adventuring and pushing my boundaries in the outdoors; whether this means cycling up a new mountain or putting down miles in the back country with a kitchen and tent on my back, there is something about the smell of fresh morning rains and afternoon heat that I can't find anywhere but, well, the middle of nowhere :)

Interesting Factoid

When I first came to college, I aspired to be a professional jazz musician.
