I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon, where I developed a love for rain and coffee. As a kid, I spent a lot of time exploring the city, as well as the outdoor environments that flourished so close to my urban neighborhood. Now I live in Colorado, where I teach secondary History and English, and regularly get to explore the Rocky Mountains with my snowboard and a camera. I thrive on meeting cool people and taking new adventures, and I love telling stories through writing, photography, and video.
