About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I'd like to make new friends and to make traveling more personal for others and myself. The best experiences are those that you can share with other people.

ABOUT ME

I've done a lot of traveling and still like to travel and explore. I have lived in Germany and still speak German although I'm pretty rusty. I've been to the Eiffel Tower, sat in pitch black of the Great Pyramids of Egypt, been to the Blue Mosque in Istanbul, ate ice cream in Hanoi, and rode in police car in Melboune, Autralia. I've kayaked on the Charles River in Boston and Mt Biked in Moab, tried skydiving, kite boarding and did an open water swim in La Jolla, CA. Still there always more adventures to do. Kayak the Erie Canal, ride(motorcycle) the TransAmerica Trail, hike the Arizona Trail or Appalachian Trail, bicycle across the US or a hut to hut hike in Switzerland or the Pyranese. My most recent trip was 2 weeks of mt. biking in Tibet and 4 days in Hong Kong.I like to be active and creative. I like to bike as transportation as much as I can, try cooking new recipes, doing repairs and mods to my truck or motorcycle. I like to workout by running, swimming, biking or yoga. I enjoy finding new destinations whether they be restaurants, back roads, overlooks or towns. I like listening to all types of music and going out to see bands play at the local venues.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
