I'm an adventurer in every sense of the word. I have scuba dived the kelp forests of Monterey, trekked the rain forests of China, helicoptered in to ski the snow capped mountains of New Zealand, motorcycled through the Swiss Alps, done a New Years Shinto shrine visit in Japan, and gotten lost in the canals of Venice.
Spending time with my friends and family is extremely important and I have been told that one of my best qualities is my loyalty to these people in my life. I am spontaneous and outgoing. I thrive in situations where I know no one. In a heartbeat I will shed my muddy backpack and throw on a suit. I've also been known to curl up in front of a fire with a glass of whiskey and a good book.

When I'm not riding into the sunset on my motorcycle or sailing the open seas, I volunteer at the Academy of Sciences. I mean who doesn't enjoy teaching kids that baby squirrels come from acorns?
I'm currently pursuing my MBA at UT Austin.
Knowing the difference between African and European swallows. Swinging to Duke Ellington. Not going straight to your pictures when I open your profile. Getting my passport stamped like its going out of style. Listening. Reaching the top shelf. Dancing in the rain. Taking names and kicking ass. Being a beacon of hope when my friends are lost in a large crowd. Tipping generously. Looking dapper in a suit.
I am the resident event planner among my friends. Everything from movie nights and bar crawls to my annual 20+ person ski trip and camping trips, I am almost always on the go. Go big or go home!
