I guess people could characterize my personality as really outgoing
and energetic, however, I do really enjoy a "chill" moment.
Honestly, I think Van Wilder said it best "You shouldn't live life
to seriously, you'll never get out alive." You'll find I consider
my friends like family, and I rarely get angry and overly upset. I
love adventure and I love the mountains. I'll try almost anything
What I’m doing with my life
Right now, I'm living in Fort Collins attending Colorado State
working on a Ph.D. in Atmospheric Science. I perform carbon cycle
research by computer modeling. I can explain more of what that
means in person.
I love to have adventures. In the next year, I plan on doing a bit
of travelling up some tall mountains, whitewater kayaking down some
big rivers, lead climbing up a few ice faces, and maybe even
skydiving. I also plan on giving my hand a try at some homebrewing,
a couple 5k's, and exploring restaurants in the area (I'm a major
I’m really good at
Karate, goofing off, being serious, being not serious at serious
moments, breaking the ice, helping youth (I'm involved with the
scouting movement), solo-climbing, adventuring, cooking, wanting to
be a Bill Nye the Science guy.
The first things people usually notice about me
my humor. I'm very light-hearted when I meet most people.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: 1984, Animal Farm, anything by Socrates, Twelfth Night. As
can be seen, I'm a sucker for the real classics.
Movies: I love action, mind-bender, sci-fi, and comedy. Some of my
favorites include the Terminator series (Arnold just makes me
laugh), Caddyshack, Ghostbusters, Groundhog Day, Billy Madison,
Anchorman (I can pretty much recite the whole film), almost any
Leonardo DiCaprio movie and same goes for Brad Pitt.
Shows: I don't watch a whole lot of TV, but I think any of the
classic Nicktoons summarized my childhood. Nowadays I'm addicted to
Breaking Bad, Scrubs, Tosh.0, and South Park as my main stream
watches. Survivorman and Man vs Wild are good to feed my
adventurous mind. Mythbusters and Modern Marvels can consume a
whole day if I let them. It takes me awhile to really get hooked on
a show, but when I do I watch them all the time
Music: As corny as it sounds, I love all music. My brother
instilled that thought in me. I guess some bands I'll listen to
usually are Blink 182, Frankie Vallie and the Four Seasons, Sum 41,
Earth Wind and Fire and more! The radio or pandora is always on in
Food: I love to cook, seriously. I think staying in and cooking is
so much more relaxing and fun than just going to some so-so
restaurant. Southwestern, Italian, Japanese, and Latino styles are
The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
my friends, clouds, carbon, mountains, fuzzy things. At the moment,
I do spend a lot of my time thinking of my next food to make. I
have a food blog for healthy spins on my favorite recipes!
On a typical Friday night I am
I am usually just being a bit of a busy bee. I like to scope out
the local eateries for some good eats on Fridays. After that, I am
out with my friends hanging out, camping, or passing out, its the
perfect way to relax after a busy week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a nickname. It has something to do with the weather.
You should message me if
If you'd like to know anything more, grab a drink, climb a
mountain, blast off to space, or just chill.
