It’s not really about me, is it. Is it?

It’s really seductive to use this space to inflate my ego and to tell you what makes me special. But it also sounds snooty and intentionally vague when I don’t give you any information. So, here’s my story.

I grew up in California’s Central Valley. 18 years of ghettos, cows, small towns, small minds, Asthma inducing air, and a year with only 2 seasons was enough to make me want so much more.

So I moved to Flagstaff, AZ for perspective. I changed my major 4 or 5 times, got engaged, got unengaged, got angry, got sad, got inspired, got a job with the Forest Service and got the itch to move.

Now I’m here in Washington. After taking a couple years off, I’m a finishing a year of high-level mathematics and physics at a community college before moving again to finish my degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering.

I love nature. I love writing. I love improving the world around me.

I write this blog for myself as a means to catalog and explore ideas, but I feel privileged to see how it reaches every one of you reading this.

If I communicate anything with you, I hope it is that conviction, passion and courage can change the world and that it is within your means to reach it. I also hope that, on occasion, I can make you laugh.

We’ll see.
