I like to think I'm laid back and easy to get along with. I like good beer and good conversation, ideally outdoors if the weather cooperates.
I'm an avid skier, hiker, and traveler. I have a degree in public policy and work as a researcher and analyst for a small non-profit group.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I spent 19 days solo hiking the John Muir Trail in the Sierra Nevadas. It was my first hike longer than 2 days and I've been hooked ever since.
Teach, Learn, Share
I know a decent bit about backpacking (long-distance hiking/camping).
I would love to build on my very limited rock climbing experience.
