About Me

I graduated from a forestry college in the Adirondacks in May 2014 and just recently graduated with a B.S. in Conservation Biology. Celebrating the end of my academic career, my boyfriend, our best friend and I are headed to Iceland for a bicycle tour around the island's perimeter.

I know next-to-nothing about bicycles, but I suppose I'll learn quickly once we get going.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I once helped bake this peach blueberry pie: http://flic.kr/p/cHcYxf

Teach, Learn, Share

I can explain the nitrogen cycle pretty well, and if you have a fish tank I'd be happy to help you set up an aquaponics system.
I'd really like to learn how to do a cartwheel.
