About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To bike 5,000 miles across the U.S. from Acadia National Park to Olympic National Park.

Update: Completed!!

ABOUT ME

I like to bike, eat berries, and lay in the sun. I used to work for a company that grows biodegradable packaging out of mushroom roots and agricultural waste; basically a sustainable alternative to styrofoam! I worked in the lab there helping with different experiments. I am currently traveling around Australia and New Zealand volunteering on farms and exploring the southern hemisphere. My next goal in life is to earn a master's degree in sustainable food systems.

I have a love for traveling and seeing new things, I feel like I can't stay in the same place for too long. I've used couchsurfing in the past while traveling through Europe, on a cross country bicycle trip with my friend Mark, and now as I adventure though Australia and New Zealand. I love to learn about all sorts of different things whenever I can, and I love to laugh as much as possible.

PHILOSOPHY

Do what you love.
