I went to college and graduate school in the western part of the state. I love to ski and snowboard. I normally get about 30 days on the mountain each year. I started skydiving professionally during the summers when I was in college and still keep my instructor ratings current, despite not doing it for work anymore.
My interests are very eclectic. I am just as happy climbing a mountain as I am sitting and having a good conversation. I think having new experiences and thinking in new ways are both so important. I really enjoy writing and am writing a book about various adventures I've been on and lessons I've learned. I'm not pretentious enough to think anyone will want to read it; it's really just a hobby.
My hobbies include:
I believe in working hard and playing hard. I think it is important to dedicate yourself to what you're doing, but to never take yourself too seriously.
I can laugh at most things, especially myself. I think it is important to appreciate what you have, while working for what you want. Also, the little things matter. Help people whenever you can.
