I am a 30 something Oregonian living in Colorado for the past 4 years. Previously a software engineer at National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), I got laid off at a tech start up, traveled a bit, and now doing some contracting web-dev work.

I am a meditator, an ex-christian, and mostly now consider myself to be mostly Buddhist. I practice non-violence.

The world fascinates me. Especially culture and food. I love cooking and I often find myself reading good cookbooks front to back when I first get them.

I love challenging myself completely. Giving myself the hardest task and completing it, despite the challenges or the time it takes to do so.

I have previously suffered from mental illness (undiagnosed depression, anxiety, panic and PTSD) and I am now on the other side of it. I’ve worked hard to look at my childhood, thoughts, relationships, and behavior patterns and change who I am and I think I am. I am now trying to live with more joy, fun and gratitude.

I value honesty, vulnerability and growth. I have a lot of room to grow but I look forward to all of it.

Feel free to contact me on any of my socials.
