About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To Enjoy Life

ABOUT ME

I recently biked from Rhode Island to New Orleans. The plan was to circumnavigate the globe in one go but I am happy to announce I got engaged and am now breaking the trip up into several sections over the next few years. I met hundreds of amazing CS'ers along the way and want to give back to the community.

I love Extreme sports of all kinds and have tried most of them short of sky diving and bungee jumping, and I have no hesitation to add them to my list. My favorite outdoor activities are backpacking and rock climbing. As for indoor stuff I love to spar with just about anyone who will offer to, I also Coach Fencing for the URI Fencing team, and greatly enjoy urban exploration. As for more tame activities I love to read, particularly history and odd works of philosophy, stuff that challenges your everyday perceptions of reality and such. I also love wandering randomly just about anywhere, urban or wilderness environments.

PHILOSOPHY

Live life, and be part of it. Not some cog in a clock, don't fall into cycles and trappings of culture and society. Enjoy the brief time we all have on this earth and live it to the fullest. And try to do good while your out there doing your thing.
