My self-summary
My love for people and desire to make a difference has led me to my current career path and motivates me in my work. If I'm not working, I'm trying to enjoy all the great things in life-good food and drink, the outdoors, and good people.
What I’m doing with my life
Spending the summer in Vermont! I lived here for eight years (four of them in college) and am currently going to graduate school in Oregon full time. My love for New England drew me back for the summer, where I'm working as a civil engineer, riding my bike as much as possible, and drinking Vermont beer while hanging out with friends.

With a background in Civil Engineering and pursuing a graduate degree in Community and Regional Planning, the short answer is I want to save the world. The long answer is I like local food systems, rural community development, transportation planning, and disaster resilience. How those combine to make the most difference is something I'm still working on.

I also lead wilderness trips for teenagers through an organization that promotes character development and personal growth. Over the last 8 years, I've found it to be some of the most rewarding work I can do, and make sure I do it at least once a year.
The first things people usually notice about me
Smiling and laughing are necessary to my day, and there's a lot I love about life!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Obsessed with Parks & Recreation and Suits right now, and enjoy most types of music, especially live. Vermont made me fall in love with food, so the restaurants, cheese, beer, and bread I've found here are some of the best.
Six things I could never do without
Mountain biking
Maple syrup
Good beer

Mountain biking, good food, solutions that can address multiple societal problems, people.
On a typical Friday night I am
The last two weeks I've mountain biked in the Northeast Kingdom, and then headed to Trout River Brewery for pizza and beer. But I also enjoy drinking on patios, especially in the summer.
You should message me if
Looking for someone (friends, activity partners or otherwise) to hang out with and enjoy all that Vermont summers have to offer. I can't say I'm looking for something long term right now (headed back to Oregon in September), but at the same time, the right person can always come along!
