    • Outdoor Experience: : In 2012, I did the four-day Inca Trail hike to Machu Picchu, an incredible experience. Although I was a fairly seasoned hiker at that point, it was my first time sleeping in a tent. The awesome experience prompted me to become a serious hiker (I climbed Mt Whitney in 2014) and also to start backpacking. I now hike at least two or three weekends every month. In November 2016, I earned a list completion from the Sierra Club's 100 Peaks Section (check it out at hundredpeaks.org). Altogether, I hiked about 585 miles in 2016, and I've hiked about 206 miles so far in 2017. I'm interested in multi-day trips (Annapurna Circuit, PCT section hikes, John Muir Trail, etc.) and have a Kilimanjaro climb in my sights...maybe for summer of 2018. I also did my first Spartan race in December 2016, which was a total blast!
