I'm originally from the northwest suburbs of Chicago, but I lived in Madison, Wisconsin for four years while doing my undergraduate work at the University of Wisconsin. I loved Madison, but was fortunate to find my next home in the small town of Laramie, WY, nestled in the Medicine Bow Mountains. I've taken up quite a few outdoor activities since moving here. So if I'm not working you'll usually find me hiking, backpacking, skiing, or camping. I love being outside.

    My other main interest is music. I'm passionate about live music, and I get out to as many shows (usually down in Colorado...) as I can. I've played guitar since I was 8, and I also dabble in the bass, banjo, and various hand drums (particlarly the djembe). I mostly play/write blues, folk, and bluegrass, but I also play around with electronic music when I have the time. If you're ever in Laramie and want to jam, definitely get in touch! There's a link to my soundcloud page below, but it leans heavily toward my electronic music. I haven't yet uploaded all of my other recordings there. You'll often find me playing at open mic night at Coal Creek Coffee downtown on the first Wednesday of every month.

    I'm interested in photography, and a selection of some of my work can be seen here.

    I also enjoy writing, mostly poetry that I'm attempting to turn into lyrics for the music I write, or just rambling to myself in my journals. I'm working on a book of poems with Shannon Hall (she's a science writer) — maybe you'll see it on a bookstore shelf someday.
