I'm a young professional that works for the National Park Service. I manage historic preservation projects and cultural resources. My work keeps me moving and I am on the road a lot and have lived and worked in some of the most beautiful places this country has to offer from the Channel Islands to the Dry Tortugas. Originally from the suburbs of Chicago, I have been pretty mobile since the mid-1990's. I have been splitting my time between Missoula, MT and Key West, FL the last five years. Missoula is where my heart is and Key West is where my bike and swim suit are. I love art, music, traveling, puns, independent films, good dogs and good food. I am an avid photographer and like to try to paint; mostly people's pet dogs. I can't get enough music in my life and my musical tastes are all over the board from Leonard Cohen to Iggy Pop. I have traveled this country extensively by road and some abroad. I have been working for the National Park Service for 11 years preserving cultural resources and managing hands on preservation projects. Most of that time has been spent living in one national park or another from coast to coast. Being mobile I have a broad exposure to many walks of life. I also have a great understanding of what is needed for a traveler to be comfortable and I believe I offer that in this home. I have lots of great park stories and destination tips. I'm also a huge sports fan and athlete. Golf and hockey are two of my favorite things to do. I also really enjoy good music listening and learning from others experiences and usually passing along some jokes. I smile and laugh a lot and like to share company with others that do the same. Life is an amazing adventure; soak it up!
