I spend my time doing what makes me come alive: Nothing’s better than running up Romero Canyon and rising above the ocean fog; skiing down fresh snow from high in the Indian Peaks; laughing with climbing friends around a campfire in Joshua Tree; doing cartwheels at the local crossfit gym, getting lost while searching for hot springs in Costa Rica; exploring rural Spain on foot, mountain biking among pine trees along Buffalo Creek; learning to kayak at Confluence Park; or [insert next adventure here]. And then afterwards laughing about it with friends.
I came back to Denver, my hometown, at the end of 2013, after more than a decade of roaming. I just moved into a new flat on the edge of downtown and am happily making it home. So much has changed since I last lived here! I'm excited to rediscover it.
I work for a national environmental advocacy organization, advancing solutions to global warming. I love the people I work with (they are smart, optimistic and tough) and knowing that what I do every day really matters.
Cooking is one of my favorite excuses to get interesting friends together (and for emptying out the fridge). I often invent new (and occasionally delicious) things to eat with whatever ingredients are nearby. And for dessert, I love to top it all off with some live music (think South of France and Tennis at the Bluebird).
In short, I am a living poem who loves to play with friends, feed them delicious things and take them to indie rock concerts.
