I'm a friendly guy from Oregon who has gotten a chance to travel a bit and generally likes everyone he meets. I have studied economics, public policy, and biology, and currently work to understand coronary artery development with the goal of reducing birth defects and developing heart therapies. I'm respectful of anyone who opens their house to me and I try to be receptive to any feedback. I'm also very curious and happy to talk about most anything someone is passionate about it: I'm always fascinated by what excites someone and gets them up in the morning. As for style, I like to travel as light as possible, see as many things as possible, and pack my days less I miss something. Looking forward to meeting you!
