I’ve lived most of my life in the Northwest except for a 3 year stint in Spain when I was little. I went to college at a small liberal arts college and graduated with my degree in Economics. I’m a career-driven guy, but I recently took a break to hike 1000 miles of the Cascades (along the PCT) and then to bicycle across the U.S. Now I work as an analyst downtown.
I love going outside to experience things. Some of my favorites include:
browsing art in public parks,
biking on singletrack,
looking up at the water surface while SCUBA diving,
trying the ‘seasonal’ choice on tap,
savoring the view from the top of a mountain,
the tastiness of food while camping,
and coming home from all these adventures and recalling the good memories I've made.
My favorite site on the internet is probably The Atlantic’s InFocus news/photography blog. I also like xkcd.
I like lots of music but if I had to listen to one artist for the rest of eternity, I'd pick Radiohead (for the variety). My favorite Pandora station was seeded with The Helio Sequence. Close second is one seeded by Ratatat.
I'm always looking to try new food; I haven't found any food I won't eat. My favorite type of beer is IPA but on hot days nothing beats a refreshing Rainier.
