My self-summary
I've always valued experience and self expression over material possessions, so I set myself on a course that has led me to week long bicycle tours, to the top of some of the countries highest mountain tops, and over a month spent backpacking in the Grand Canyon. I've worked for the National Forest Service in Colorado and traveled to 11 countries overseas. I've come to know the difference between the isolation of living in Los Angeles compared to the isolation of living on a small island on the Canadian border. However, I think in the long run happiness comes from the relationship we have with ourselves. The people we ultimately surround ourselves with become reflections of our true self.

"Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.”
-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832)
I’m really good at
Listening and giving counsel.

Not taking life very seriously and doing some pretty bold and daring shit.
The first things people usually notice about me
My height and my smile. I don't smile for photos, but I smile a lot in person.

I'm told upon first meeting I come off rather intense, but it doesn't take long to figure out I'm a big goof.
