Hello there _______,
I am a young professional living and working in the Boston, MA area. Throughout my life I've developed an affinity for three things; the great outdoors, live music, and cooking & eating delicious food. When I can combine any or all of these facets, you can bet I'm one happy clam. I am a firm believer in learning from the world around you, not letting any detail pass you by without some thought or consideration. Much of what I know with regards to my hobbies and passions, whether it is hiking or snowboarding, playing the drums or discovering new artists, trying a new recipe or exploring an unknown cuisine, comes from my desire to grow and learn.
As a traveler I prefer to pack light, bringing only what I need to explore the destination on hand. I try to find accommodations with an ideal location which serve more as a home base rather than a place to crash and spend time. As a guest, I will more often than not be out and about; for example experiencing the snow on and off the trails in Breckenridge, taste touring the craft brews and cheeses of Vermont, or following up a friends suggestion to see a new band in Williamsburg.
An important lesson I've learned over the years is that being a guest is a privilege and not a right. Whether you are in a gracious host's home or a national park, it is still your duty to respect the inhabitants and leave the place as you found it, if not in better condition.
I hope someday our paths may cross and we can share a story or two.
