Easy going kind of guy. I am always up for new experiences and new adventures. I always try and get the most I possibly can out of life. Easy to talk to and really enjoy traveling. I currently am enrolled at Ball State University back in the states and studying Natural Resources.
I have many interests, but most of all would be music. I play piano, guitar, bass, mandolin, and am attempting to learn the saxophone and violin. I also am an avid outdoors-man that enjoys hiking, camping, spelunking, climbing, fishing and pretty much anything outside.
- outdoor activities
- scuba diving

Классная вещь, которую я сделал(-а)
The first and absolutely most amazing sight I have ever seen occurred on the beach late one night while studying abroad in Lennox Head, Australia. There was the most beautiful storm over the town with very extreme and bright lightening strikes coming out of the clouds down the beach. While watching this, the clouds overhead cleared away and opened the sky to the most brilliant and vibrant stars I have ever seen. I have never in my life been able to see so many stars at one time. Then, to top it off there was a bright orange figure in the water a good ways out. As it slowly grew (looked as though it was coming closer), we realized it was a full harvest moon coming out over the ocean. And so, simultaneously, there was an amazing light show occuring over the town, more stars than I have ever seen before, and an orange harvest moon so extreme it looked as though it were the sun. It was absolutely the most beautiful thing I had ever experienced in my life.
Second would be at the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. I have only dove in Cairns and at Julian Rock in Byron Bay and both were absolutely amazing. But, best of all was night diving on the reef. I at the time was newly certified and still adjusting to being underwater. We had two night dives and that was a completely new experience I have never had imagined before. I got completely lost, surrounded by sharks, could not see anything outside of my direct flashlight, and was absolutely freaking out. Even with all of these things, I absolutely loved it and was an amazing thrill.
Third would be shortly afterwards and while doing the Routeburn Track in New Zealand. We were trying to walk back to our car and had a 27km hike to do so. The day before was rainy and pretty miserable, but this day was absolutely gorgeous. While hiking up to the saddle we decided to take the extra hour to hike up Conical Hill. We arrived to the top and was able to see for miles. There were the most beautiful mountains in every direction, clouds below, crystal blue alpine lake, and the Tasman Sea off in the distance. While up there taking in the site there was a helicopter that flew directly under us. This was the first time I had ever been in any situation even remotely close to this. Definitely an amazing experience.
