My self-summary
I'm often recognized for having a mellow and easy going attitude.

I have lived in the Seattle area for about six years. Previously I lived in Michigan where I grew up and went to school.

I like the rain so the northwest doesn't bother me. I only wish there were thunderstorms. I really miss thunderstorms...

My favorite color is green.

I'm a bit of a nerd. I work in IT, like to build my own computers, and often think romantically about space and all the unknowns waiting to be known. That being said I also love being active in the great outdoors and hobby about in a number of outdoor activities.
What I’m doing with my life
I work as a wireless engineer where I do consulting and design enterprise wireless networks. It's a pretty okay gig, but if I'm honest I'm not super over the moon about it or anything.

During my free time one might find me doing one of the following: hiking a mountain, partaking in a Netflix binge, skiing, biking, reading books, or playing video games. I'm down to do just about anything however, and I'm likely going to enjoy it.

Recently I've been (slowly) teaching myself how to hand code websites. I've found it to be very satisfying and has scratched an itch that I've had for a while now to do something creative. I'm not sure what I want to do with this knowledge yet, but it's been a blast so far.

I also hobby about doing digital paints in Photoshop. I'm not very good..
