i was born in louisville, ky, grew up in pittsburgh, pa (i am a purebred pennsyltuckian) and have spent the last six years in san francisco, ca.
in my spare time, i enjoy running, eating after running and playing with fuzzy kitties. at last check, i was 33 in human years.
in july 2007, after 5.5 years, i left a pretty cool job with an amazing company (CLIF Bar). i ain’t crazy. i’ve been thinking about getting out to explore the world for a while. and am finally scratching the itch.
shortly thereafter, i left SF on my motorcycle to spend the next two months riding throughout the US visiting small towns, national parks and friends along the way. final destination – the philadelphia airport.
in mid-september, i flew to lisbon, portugal to eventually start the round-the-world journey in nearby morocco. destinations? nepal, india, se asia, e africa and beyond. who knows.
during my time away i hope to learn a bit more about how the world works outside of the US – how the other not-so-privileged half lives. and figure out what the hell i want to do with the rest of my life. and possibly have some fun in the process.
i hope to capture a bit of the goodness from this trip in this here blog. thanks for reading.
