I grew up on the Central Coast of California, in San Luis Obispo county and went to school in Southern California where I worked as a field engineer in the construction of power plants. I've since moved to a different company and now work in the petroleum industry.
I've spent a good amount of time traveling and have seen Africa, Asia, and several countries in Europe as well as much of the Western United States and someday hope to see all 50 US states.
I have always loved nature, especially the ocean, as well as sports. I enjoy playing basketball the most and piano when the urge strikes me.
