I'm a native-born Texan, raised on books, barbecue, and boiling-hot summers. I've always had a penchant for taking pictures of the things and people around me, as well as for talking way too much, and hopefully this website will serve as a (constructive?) blending of these two!
I hold a B.S. degree in Computer Science & Engineering from MIT, and currently work as a Senior Software Engineer for Binti! When I'm not sitting behind a desk at a computer, I thoroughly enjoy most activities which take me outside, especially hiking. I'll be moving to Seattle early 2024, and I'm super excited to be closer to the beautiful nature that's up in the PNW!
If you'd like to take a look at some of my pictures, take a gander at my photography galleries*. Right now, I've got pictures from building/sailing ice sailboats, my trip through Iceland, my PCT/OCT hike, a four-day trip through Inyo National Forest, a Bishop climbing trip, and a two-day trek through the John Muir Wilderness. I also added a month-long trip in Portugal during January 2022, and a multi-week hike across Scotland in May 2023.
A goal of mine is to go on at least one long hike every year - while there are plenty of opportunities to hike in the U.S., I definitely want to explore more international long hikes in the coming years!
