I am a “think out of the box” kind of guy with a dry sense of humor. I like to laugh and make people laugh, but when people first meet me the think that I am very serious until they find out that I have been making fun of them, and myself the whole time. I don’t really fit into a stereotype, or at least I haven’t found one I like yet.
I am always up for adventure especially one that involves the outdoors. I love most things outdoors – hiking, camping, looking for cool rocks and animals, skiing, scuba diving, and traveling to remote places in the world. I have been blessed to have a great job where I can be a scientist and discover how animals interact with light in warm tropical waters and the rain forests of Central America.
I am always trying to improve myself and take on projects that are challenging for me; as such I have put a lot of work into myself. My recent adventure has been to start doing gymnastics where as I have never done it formally before and probably won’t be able to in the near future.
