About Me

Resourceful, insightful, sometimes absent-minded


to cover a lot of KMs on my bike, and to make an idiot of myself speaking poorly in as many languages as possible.

Summer 2015 itinerary

Italia-Switzerland-Slovenija-Croatia-Deutschland-Poland-East Coast USA-Canada-Brasil, and then, sadly back to work for the rest of my life...


one day at a time, no expectations

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Climbing to the ruins of an old fortress atop a bosnian mountain, hearing nothing but crickets, seeing the valley drop out below -- thinking of all of the blood shed (going back to the Illyrians) trying to control that one spot.

Had my leg crushed in an accident, had surgical reconstruction, used a bike for physical rehab, and am now biking over 100 km per day!
