I am originally from Wisconsin the land of beer and cheese. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 2011 and moved to Knoxville, TN shortly after graduating. My family was moving to TN and I needed to get away from Wisconsin winters (They are awful!) so I came with. I am the second oldest out of eight kids (Yeah, its a little ridiculous I know) but I wouldn't have it any other way.
Now, I am in Athens because I am starting a full time job with the Athens-Clarke County Government. My family stayed in Knoxville and so I know no one here in Athens.
As far as interests go, I am an outdoorsy person. I love to hike, bike, camp, fish (Nothing is better than being in a stream with a fly rod!), cookout, etc. I have recently started running on a regular basis. I ran a half marathon earlier this year and enjoyed it tremendously. I run about four days a week and go to the gym about the same amount.
My other interests (non-outdoorsy) include: reading, writing, learning new skills (Cooking and improving my Spanish are at the top of the list), perusing antique shops or places like Goodwill for neat things, or just hanging around home. I am definitely an easy-going guy and I can be happy doing pretty much anything. As excited as I am for my new career, I feel even more excited about exploring Athens and GA.
I don't want to ramble on forever so if you have any questions don't be shy and ask!
