I'm originally from Alaska and love the outdoors. From hiking and
camping to beach combing and kayaking--I really want to get out
more. However, I'm also happy at home snuggled up with a good book
and a cup of tea. I wish I had more time to write and create art.
What I’m doing with my life
I am very interested in social justice and accessible mental health
care around the world. My summer in Rwanda was amazing. I studied
the impact of expressive writing on trauma. I also love my job as a
counselor and see myself doing this for a long time.
I’m really good at
listening to people. I know that's cliche but I think that's really
important in a relationship.

I might be a little shy at first.

The six things I could never do without
3. My pups
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how people buy drinks for girls in bars. Why can't people do that
in book stores? If I'm looking at a novel in a book store and some
person walks up to me, strikes up a conversation and offers to buy
the book for me there is a lot better chance of that working out in
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with friends. It's usually make your own pizza night at
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm very forgetful. I will remember that I was supposed to remember
something but that's about all I can give you. So I rely on sticky
notes and reminders on my phone.
You should message me if
you are a nice guy!
