My self-summary
"Only on the road can you see that yesterday lies behind you and tomorrow waits on the path ahead. The road measures life in distance. The further you travel the longer you live."

Ma Jian in Red Dust
What I’m doing with my life
Rock climbing, snowboarding (mostly backcountry splitboarding), mountain biking, hiking, playing soccer, reading, trying (but mostly failing) to write something worth reading and taking photos.
I’m really good at
Hopefully (but probably not) everything in the paragraph above.

When eating out, pretty much anything but especially Thai and Sushi. When cooking at home, usually something with kale or quinoa and always lots of vegetables. Though I have been known to make a green smoothie and some popcorn and call it dinner.
Six things I could never do without
1 / My friends & family
2 / The mountains
3 / Books
4 / Music
5 / Thoughtful conversation
6 / My passport
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, the universe and everything.
On a typical Friday night I am
Driving to the mountains for the weekend or having dinner & drinks with friends. Or both. Or something else.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm never more stressed than when watching one of my favorite soccer teams play.
You should message me if
You want to.
The two of us
