I describe myself as adventurous, dedicated, adaptable, and a leader.  Some of my favorite hobbies include hiking, skiing, photography, traveling, music, and sports.  I enjoy hiking 14ers around Colorado and enjoy backpacking; I spent three days amazing days hiking the  Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness (Four Pass Loop – 27 miles) in Colorado.  I find it relaxing to be out in the wilderness,  at the same time getting a nice workout.  This also provides a perfect opportunity to take photos of the wilderness!

Team sports top the list of athletic involvement.  My favorite sport is ice hockey.  At an early age, I began skating for the first time with the help from my dad!  I played up through junior year of high school and now play in adult leagues.  It is a great sport to play and watch.  In addition to ice hockey, I also play tennis from time-to-time.  Playing sports is a great way to stay active, clear the mind, and meet people with the same interests.
