I think of myself as an active, kind, and smart person. Easygoing but ambitious, a realist but absolutely optimistic. Or something like that.
Perhaps above all, I am an avid outdoorsman, especially when it comes to any on, around, or underwater activities. I also love backpacking, camping, climbing, etc.
I've been fortunate enough to travel pretty extensively in the past, especially in Central and South America. In college I was lucky enough to spend a little over a month living with an indigenous community in the Peruvian Amazon helping research emerging threats to their traditional fishing grounds. It was incredible, and undoubtedly one of the most formative influences in my life so far. I have also spent time in Australia, Mexico, Nicaragua, the Caribbean, and Europe, and certainly intend to travel more in the future.
