Yes, boating in shark-infested waters near San Diego is fun, but you'll often find me hiking Torrey Pines or shooting it out on the basketball court. And nothing gets my heart pumping faster than interval training and weight lifting.
Travel inspires me to immerse myself in new cultures... let's just say, I'm not a "sit by the pool" kind of guy. Seeing thoroughbred horses in Austria, eating fresh pasta in Italy, and hiking in the Swiss mountains - I've been a lot of places, but my bucket list is still growing. Next up though, is a trip I've planned to scuba dive at the Great Barrier Reef.
I'm grateful to have a career that excites me *almost* as much as traveling the world. I do research in a biology lab, working with a team to create renewable energy sources from plants. We use yeast to break down plant matter into alcohol - which is also how beer and wine are made (so yes, our first drinks are on me).
