First why am I in Colorado one might ask well here is the answer. I moved to DC from California this past August for a med school prep program. After I finished the program I came to the conclusion that medical school was not the right fit for me so I started moving back to California. On the way back my uncle asked me what my plans were and I said that I was gonna look for work where ever I could find it and start preparing to go into a Masters or Ph.D program. That's when he said that his charter school was hiring science teachers and here I am. I got hired and I have realized that High School Education is too much about money and not enough about kids. I have since moved on to other things.
My travels up to this point have taken me to Mexico, Guam, Japan, and Australia internationally. I have been to all but 7 states and have seen nearly every national monument.
I am a snowboard junkie if I could do one thing in life and die happy it would be an endless winter with my board. Beyond that I tend to get fascinated with a sport learn how to play it and then once I get good I find something new. Endeavors of the past are tennis, soccer, baseball, basketball, skiing, surfing, rock-climbing, martial arts, and many others.
I am also a weekend whitewater raft guide in the summer and a rock-climbing guide. A friend has recently decided I need to learn how to kayak so I guess I will doing that at some point this summer.
I am trying to learn to play Guitar and speak Spanish currently although I am not succeeding at this right now. I never seem to have time for it these days.
I can be a bit of a nerd about several things like Biology, Chemistry, Physics, etc... But that makes sense since I majored in Biology during undergrad.
I spent 6 years in the Navy on a Submarine and because of that I have been to places that very few people ever get to see; such as I have been swimming at the intersection of the date line and equator.
I have an Australian Shepherd/Golden Retriever mix. Apparently this is a new breed someone is trying to start known as a Australian Retriever. Either way she is very smart and can hop a 6 foot fence like it doesn't exist. At least she doesn't run away.
