My self-summary
Minimalist by nature. Optimist by choice.

I'm an old soul, coffee addict and lover of all things outdoors. I hike. I read. I lift. I bike. I climb.

I'm a firm believer that life's meant to be shared doing the things you enjoy with those you love.

I live by the motto: life takes effort.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently working for big pharm trying to decide whether or not I want to pursue a masters degree on Pfizers tab. At any given time I would be down to give it all up and backpack the world for the next few years.
I’m really good at
Challenging the status quo. Mario Kart. Euchre.
The first things people usually notice about me
That would depend on the person doing the noticing.

People have recently described me as: a free-spirit, serious, commonsensical, blunt...but honest and most recently "a fucking mystery."

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life and the pursuit of happiness. Trying to figure out how to create work/life balance. What to eat. What's my next adventure going to be...I road my bike to the Mackinaw Bridge earlier this year and am gearing up to hike the JMT very soon!!! Dreaming of the day I can thru-hike the AT and PCT.
You should message me if
You have a positive attitude and genuinely enjoy life.

You want to take an impromptu trip to anywhere.

Let's go on a bike ride or take a walk in the woods. Better yet, let's go ride our bikes somewhere, set up a hammock and read a book. Now that's my kind of Sunday.

you find this as absurdly funny as I do.
