When I graduated from university, I intended to take a year off to travel before finding a job or heading to grad school....that's what you're supposed to do right? Well 4 and 1/2 years later and I've managed to couchsurf through NZ, Australia, and Western Europe, backpack around Southeast Asia, teach English in Phuket, go trekking in Nepal, get paid to dive with sharks in California, and work on a dive boat on the Great Barrier Reef. I think I'm doing life right! Who knows where the wind will take me next....

I want to visit every place on this beautiful earth. I want to meet new people and try new things without being a typical tourist. I love the outdoors and being spontaneous with my travels. I love science and nature and interesting conversations. I like learning anything outside of my normal range of knowledge.

Music, Movies, and Books
Music- just about anything (not joking), it just depends on my mood. I'm a huge sucker for Dave Matthews Band, and I currently enjoy folk/indie groups like Mumford and Sons, Bear's Den, Of Monsters and Men
Movies- preferably funny or scary, but my all time favorite is The Secret Life of Walter Mitty
Books- "Into the Wild" is my bible, but "The 4-hour Workweek" is a close second
