About Me


Loving life.


I love outdoor activities, athletics, traveling and meeting new people from all over the world.


These aren't my words, but I do love this quote:

"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor souls who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat." --Theodore Roosevelt

Music, Movies, and Books

I love country music! I like pretty much any kind of music, but country is definitely a favorite.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

5 continents in 2 months; 4 continents in 1 week.

Teach, Learn, Share

In general I love to hear about your take on world events apart from what you read in the news. Also I study economics, so I'm always particularly interested in finding out about economic situations - specifically development, inequality and trade.
