I'm a friend of the earth and take recycling and sustainability seriously. Can you help me get started with some tips on composting? Growing up in West Virginia contributed to my love of the outdoors and when I've got good company to share it with, I'm always up for hiking, backpacking, camping, and kayaking.
I often think about going back to school for a graduate degree, but at this point in my life, actually living my life holds a greater importance. On the weekends, I might be checking out the new weekly beers at Adroit Theory, knocking out local hikes like Loudoun Heights or Raven Rocks, wandering around and photographing in a beautiful, historic cemetery like Oak Hill or Rock Creek, or kayaking down Antietam Creek.
Planning activities that involve with exercise, natural wonders, roadside curiosities, history, delicious beers, and plenty of laughs.
Remembering faces and names.
Helping turtles off busy roads.

Food: I eat pretty much everything. Sushi, Mediterranean, and Tex Mex are my faves. I cook at home more often than I eat out. I've mastered healthy one-pot meals, mostly creative salads, and I can sear a mean scallop.
A catchy song stuck in my head
My beat-up water bottle
Hiking boots all laced up
An unrelenting sense of curiosity and wonder
Snuggles from my cat Oliver
Something best said by Anselm Kiefer..."In boredom you are at the base of existence. You don't experience yourself when you're not bored".
Can be OK with the likelihood that I may not live super close to you. I live some distance from D.C., Baltimore, NoVa, and some parts of SoMD.
