I hail from the small, mountainous university town of Boone, North Carolina. I am constantly striving to expand my boundaries anyway I can; whether from new experiences or social circles, or just making an effort to answer the random questions that pop into my head throughout the day. I'm always up for a challenge and I think in order to efficiently progress in life, a healthy balance of work and hobbies is important. I snow and water ski, SCUBA dive, rock climb, play team sports, and volunteer.
