About Me


Currently a grad student studying climate change, specifically snow, ice and glaciers. I'm a climber, skier, runner, cyclist, etc., which goes well with the whole geology-environmental sciences thing. Finished my undergrad in '07, then spent the next two years bumming around, working as a climbing guide in Maine, a geologist in Seattle, and asst. managing a ski rental company in Colorado. Spent the two months prior to beginning my masters program traveling around western Europe and I can't wait to travel again. Upcoming trips include someting on the Cali coast, China/Taiwan in June, and hopefully Nepal in Spring '11.
