I was born and raised in New York and am currently attending graduate school in Montana. I love outdoor activities, hiking, climbing, snowboarding, and really enjoy a heated game of dominoes. I have an appreciation for the intensity of cities and the solitude of nature. Food. I love food, cooking it, eating it, the aroma! Salsa dancing is something that I'm slowly working on. I love literature, mostly dead authors, and am trying to read more poetry. My favorite philosopher is Betrand Russell and I like strong coffee. That's a smattering of who I am as a person.
