About Me


To see much, meet many, and enjoy life.


I'm in that stage of life where I'm trying to figure out what to do with it. Since graduating from college I've worked as an engineer, volunteered overseas, and now I'm getting ready to go on another year long mission trip around the world....but before I do, I'm heading out with a buddy for a cross country motorcycle trip. Let the journey begin!


I like to think of myself as an outdoor kinda guy. I'm not sure if I have all the necessary skills to get that qualification from others, but I enjoy it nonetheless. I play the guitar a little, enjoy sports like soccer and frisbee, and like anything with two wheels...mountain bike, road bike, motorcycle. Basically, I'm pretty easy to entertain and can be interested in just about anything.
