About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

I passed through Boulder on a road trip one summer and fell in love with the mountains and the people, and saying goodbye to my friends and family, took the plunge and made the best decision to call Boulder my home. I love putting myself in new scenarios to force myself to learn about the world and the people in it. I spent 6 months abroad, realizing my long-time dream of traveling to Nepal and India! It broadened my perceptions in so many aspects and only lengthened the list of places I want to travel :)

PHILOSOPHY

If you want something in life, reach out and grab it.

"I felt like lying down by the side of the trail and remembering it all. The woods do that to you, they always look familiar, long lost, like the face of a long-dead relative, like an old dream, like a piece of forgotten song drifting across the water, most of all like golden eternities of past childhood or past manhood and all the living and the dying and the heartbreak a million years ago..."--Kerouac <3

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Watching the full moon rise above the walls of the grand canyon from a perch inside an Anasazi grainery. One of those magical moments that life gives you now and again.
