I love hiking, rafting, swimming in lakes/rivers, gardening, and a myriad of other outdoor pursuits. Grew up in the midwest, but am an Oregon adoptee, and have put down roots here in Eugene. I try to live simply and with as small of an environmental impact as possible, eating locally and biking around town more than driving. I work from home for a small environmental nonprofit that is based elsewhere in the west, and we advocate for protection and restoration of our public lands and the species that live on them. I love what I do, and am lucky to be doing it here in Eugene!
