What I’m doing with my life
I'm active and enjoy playing sports or just getting outdoors. I
skate twice a week, hit up trailheads as often as possible, and
like to climb indoors/outdoors casually. If you've ever cheered for
the Sharks, climbed a real or fake rock, or backpacked in the

Europe, Africa, Asia, South America. Most recently, I taught
English at an elementary school in Korea, where I honed my
tape-recorder English skills.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
the people I love. and Hockey. and food. the things I read, and
those that I want to write about. Sometimes my work. Absurd
scenarios that pop into my head as I look out the bus window.

Sometimes going out on the town; at other times enjoying a quieter
night with close friends.
