A little history: I'm originally from PA but spent a few years in Ithaca, NY before coming to Boston. In college I double majored in physics and philosophy when I wasn't playing ultimate frisbee. I've spent about 15 years studying various martial arts (Tang Soo Do and Aikido mostly). I love to travel. I have a long list of places around the world I want to see or visit again. I have been to all corners of the U.S. including Alaska. I've also spent time in Australia, New Zealand, France, and Switzerland. I generally don't like doing touristy things though. I prefer to get off the beaten trail or, if I'm backpacking, as far from civilization as possible. I'm just getting back into rock climbing and enjoying it immensely.
I recently had surgery on my foot to remove a neuroma which has kept me from climbing or going on anything more than a day hike for the last several years. My recovery has been far quicker than my doctors expected and I'm crazy excited to start doing some serious hiking and backpacking again. I've also just discovered cycling and recently purchased a road bike. I really love going for long rides on my days off and enjoy pushing myself to do longer and faster rides.
