I am a Santa Cruz local. I've studied Marine Transportation at the California Maritime Academy, and I currently a Mate in the U.S. Merchant Marine.
In my spare time I enjoy reading all sorts of books. Novels, short essays, Fantasy, Science Fiction, Comic Books, Graphic Novels, Manga, you name it I read it.
I enjoy outdoor activities such as skiing, hiking, and gardening. I also enjoy working on projects like wood/metal working.
I really enjoy meeting new people, but at the same time I can be a bit shy, at first.
