About Me


To explore the world of fermented foods, to meet the people who craft those foods, and to have a great time doing so.


ski, have experimented many times with numerous hairstyles(no perm), have four fake teeth from a floor hockey accident, enjoy eating cheese, make my own bread, beer, kimchi, etc.., have a younger sister who is cooler than I am, love puns, am afraid of deep water (mostly the lurking monsters), am a 46'er, drew cartoons for my school newspaper, play guitar, love soccer, have worked on farms, am captivated by landscapes that include mountains, wrote my senior project in college on the experience of color


My personal philosophy is a work in progress, however, I think whoever said, "never underestimate the power of a kind word or deed" was onto something.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Chased by a bear, Climbed 46 peaks over 4,000 ft in the Adirondack Mountains.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am an intermediate guitar plucker who is happy to share knowledge of the frets!

I am also a mediocre Neuroscience student and a better philosophy student, so I am more than happy to geek out about these subjects at length.
