i love to get outside and desperately miss the summer. when it's warm out on any given day you might find me playing volleyball at north ave beach, running along the lake, playing golf or tennis, rock climbing, going to a streetfest or at an outdoor concert. now that the winter is upon us i'm mostly wishing chicago had some mountains to snowboard down, living in complete denial about how cold it really is, and searching for cool new things to try out. oh, and eating. i *love* food. i like to take pictures of stuff and took a few pottery classes after i moved here, so if you want a shoddy looking bowl or an ugly mug to impress your friends, i'm your guy.
i picked up the travel bug after college and have been doing my best to see the world since. the next place on my list is south america, so if you've hiked the inca trail or have any recommendations for the area i'd be keen to hear about it. or, if you think you've got a better idea of where i should go, let me hear it.
