One time I spent 5 days traveling across the sahel with 9 people in a 2 door 80s corolla to go to a new years party. I'm a sarcastic, bearded, tattooed, left handed, middle child, returned peace corps volunteer who works with kids. I like to collect old things, I love museums, I appreciate history. I place intelligence above all else, and love a good conversation. I love spoken word poetry. I love to paint, draw, write, and build. My favorite place is in my car with loud music and the windows down.
What I’m doing with my life
I got my degree in English then couldn't decide what to do so I did the Peace Corps thing and lived in Cameroon, West Africa, now I am back stateside. I'm currently a supervisor at a child psychiatric and problem sexual behavior unit. I'm also the assistant ropes course manager. I'm currently looking into getting my masters then doctorate. Ultimately I want to continue to work with kids with abuse and neglect. When I was younger I wanted to be an astronaut.
I’m really good at
Jeopardy, therapeutic crisis intervention, dad voice.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
One time, when I was a kid my family got a new boat. We were sitting on it and trying to think of a name for it. After recently hearing of the band, I suggested the name orgy, not knowing what that really was. And that's the story of how I got the sex talk.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working on one of a million projects renovating my house.
You should message me if
You enjoy spending time with my dog almost as much as me, wanna go hiking/kayaking/rock climbing or any other generic outdoor activity, and then spend equal time sitting on our asses sharing stories and drinking coffee, or you wanna live out your pinterest dreams and help me fix up my house.
