I am currently a graduate student at the University of Oregon studying urban planning. I am from Seattle but spent the past three years in New Orleans with my girlfriend Rachel. We both moved to New Orleans to help with the rebuilding efforts. Rachel as a school teacher and myself rebuilding homes which led into urban planning. We both love to travel whenever we have the opportunity. Between the two of us we have been to Europe, South America, the Middle East, Australia/New Zealand, Asia and a number National Parks.
