ABOUT ME: I am a pilot, a poet, a teacher, a problem solver, a Nordic and Alpine skier, and an adventurer. I love hiking long and short distances, walking at night in the rain, padding between islands, playing games like Code Names and Carcassonne and Spyfall, and connecting genuinely with people like you. I tend not to be excited about things like drinking, drugs, television, and popular culture.

Music, Movies, and Books
These books are rich in truth about what it means to be human:
Shantaram, by Gregory David Roberts
Endurance, about the Shackleton expedition
The Miracle of Mindfulness, by Thich Nhat Hanh
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Learning to fly. Visiting a village in India that had never before seen a foreigner. The Alaska Highway in winter. Being licked by a tiger.
Teach, Learn, Share
I can show you the wilderness, possibly take you flying, offer Pacific Northwest transit/travel tips, and show you how to make an ultra-lightweight portable stove out of used beverage cans... and I'd love to learn anything that you're passionate about and willing to teach!
What I Can Share with Hosts
If you let me, I'll cook dinner and wash your dishes. Seriously.
