Did you know...? 

My favorite place in the world is
… the American west. From the Rockies to the Pacific, the Sonoran Desert to Cascadia, the West is as diverse as it is beautiful.

When I travel, the thing I miss most... is Colorado craft beer, and a close second is high-speed internet.

I never leave my house without... first opening the door. I often leave my house with my bike, my car keys, absolutely no idea where I'm headed or where I'm going to be sleeping, and end up in a different state.

My favorite spot to vacation is
... the southwest, because I love the heat, cactuses, and the desert.

My favorite sport is... American football; I'm a huge Seattle Seahawks fan, but also support the Denver Broncos.

The weirdest thing about me is... my preferred sleep schedule is from 1 or 2 in the morning to about noon.
