I thrive on being outside. Rain or shine, I'd almost always prefer
to be outdoors. I'm a big fan of hiking, camping, attempting to
surf, scuba diving and kayaking but I'm always looking for new
things to try. I'd really like to attempt rock climbing but
probably need to conquer a rock wall first.
I, like any self-respecting person, try my best to surround myself
with motivating, interesting and passionate people. Every
relationship, platonic or romantic, is an exchange that you should
equally invest in and benefit from. While I tend to keep my number
of close friends low, I'm very open to meeting new people.
I also have a dry sense of humor.
