people on this site in the real world, and I'm pretty sure I'd be
missing out on getting to know some great people. That being said,
shoot me a message if you're interested- I'd love to get to know

suffer through my morning grumpiness
The first things people usually notice about me

to think of it as a public service... providing a constant stream
of helpful advice and interesting anecdotes.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
#1 - The obligatory family and friends
#2 -Mountain bike trails
