About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Find the best beer in the world, the next great ski town, then figure out how to make that my profession.

ABOUT ME

I appreciate the outdoors, and anything to get me there. I have a passion towards many things and snowboarding. I enjoy all seasons. New Hampshire has spoiled my Autumns. Enjoy all types of music.

Renewable Energy intrigues me, Photo Voltaic specifically. Broaden my understanding of different energy implications.

Goal: find a livable area, with good people, nice surroundings and Good beer.

PHILOSOPHY

Live Free or Die!

The only way to understand, is to understand, that I can't understand everything.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Being a Wildland Fire Fighter for the last few seasons,
I didn't imagine myself being as comfortable with fire in large, uncontrolled settings, like I am now.

Sure, there are some good stories of getting burned and jumping through flame fronts. But the best story may have been when I ate a huge mormon cricket for $112 dollars. Field mice are smaller then what this thing was.

Teach, Learn, Share

I have been brewing beer for a few years. Learning in Oregon, my mentor showed me all he has to offer. Its now time to spread my wings and see what kind of different cultural influences there are to consider.

I am learning German, as well as picking up the Guitar.

I have a firm grasp on survival skills. I enjoy camping, hiking, and situations that challenge my adversity.
