Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I moved up to Boston last July for work and to be closer to my
family. It definitely took a little getting used to but I'm really
enjoying living here. I love being able to bike to work everyday
and the plethora of great restaurants and bars in the area. Being
relatively close to the White Mountains is also a nice bonus.
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
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

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I've come to learn that there are very few things in life that you
really can't live without. It just takes some adjustment and time
to adapt. However, I suppose that doesn't really answer the spirit
of the question. So, here is a list of thing I would hope I never
have give up:
- my family
- hiking, backpacking, rock climbing, or other outdoor adventures
- daily exercise of some form or another
- down time to relax and recharge
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I'm going to say at my sister's wedding next month. I'm
officiating the ceremony, so it REALLY needs to be good. Ideas or
suggestions are always welcome.
Update: I finished writing my speech and it made both my sister and
my dad cry, so I'm going to call that a win.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working, out for drinks with friends, or at the rock gym
