In four words, I am a: scientist, homesteader, environmentalist, explorer. I am a
Graduate Student Researcher at Purdue University, where I study comets, asteroids, and big icy things like Pluto. My wife and I live on a farm outside of town, where we grow our food and raise chickens (for eggs). I love to bike, climb and backpack, and run, and I am always looking for a new way to enjoy being outside! Also, I enjoy and approach life with a good sense of humor.
And, since Airbnb suggests my saying: my style of traveling is "tread softly". I like to be present and explore new places, but never want to be loud or imposing.
Also, 4 things I can't live without: Veggies, Coffee, Physical Activity, and access to the Internet.
