I'm an active hiker and backpacker. Most of my trips are just weekends whenever I can fit them in regardless of the season. I also enjoy biking, kayaking, and snowshoeing.
I'm also a licensed amateur radio operator (Ham radio) involved in Amateur Radio Emergency Services (ARES) and the National Weather Service SKYWARN storm spotter program.
I always enjoy new challenges, whether they be a winter ascent of Mount Washington or completing a 50-mile team-based endurance event in under 17 hours.
In addition to my enjoyment of the outdoors, I've worked for several outdoor sports retailers over the years.
