Despite growing up out here, I never got much into winter sports before. Last year I decided to finally give it a shot, and I loved it! If you're still fairly new to skiing/riding (or snowshoeing or cross country) yourself and you're looking for someone to make those chair lift rides more interesting, we should talk.
My big summer project this year was to get scuba certified. I finished my open water, advanced open water, and nitrox certifications, and got a basic gear package. Did a few weeks in Key Largo for my first saltwater dives; planning on doing Cozumel in 2014. I'm still looking for a regular dive buddy, if that strikes a chord with anyone.
I've also been getting into road cycling over the past year or so (finished my first century ride this summer, wooh!), although so far that's been more about fitness than recreation. Sill, I could be talked into a weekend getaway up to the mountains, if you have a favorite mountain biking trail. None of my friends are big hikers, but I'd be down to give Grays or Torreys a shot if that's your thing.
But that's enough about recreation. You want to know more about me, right? You're on the edge of your seat with excitement. Don't try to deny it. I'm a Colorado native, of course. I moved out to California after college, then to Connecticut after that, then came back home a little while ago. As an interesting side note, that means I have lived in all of the states that start with 'C', and only those states. I hereby declare it my favorite letter of the alphabet.
You'll find me at my best when I'm engaged, when I'm challenged, and when I'm curious. I'd be lost without goals to strive for, plans to hatch, and hurdles to clear.
