A self-described jack of all trades, master of some. After friends and family; my time is spent exploring the world's cities, countrysides, and the great outdoors. If time and money allows, I'll always try to do something myself first.

By profession, I am a civil engineer who specializes in bicycle and pedestrian transportation as well as public outreach.

At age 12, my friends and I successfully petitioned to build a skatepark for our BMX bikes. By high school, I had convinced city council with my then drafting portfolio that I should design it. That has led to a career working in government and supporting the creation of public infrastructure.

I like to engage people with an open mind. Always on the hunt for knowledge and passionate about this life on earth.
