: Even-keeled, responsible, driven,
sentimental guy. Tech professional
(software/website engineer) by day, avid
hiker and also occasional classical singer
by night/weekend. Music preference is all
over the map, and includes pretty much
anything except heavy metal, hard rock,
and country. Hiking is my passion, and I
welcome the opportunity to share
experiences and tips with others.
5'9", 175, bl/br, spiritually liberal and open.
Workouts (strength + cardio training, a little
yoga) usually several times a week.
Healthy eater, only very occasional
drinker; not into smoking of any kind.
: The higher summits across New England and beyond are a constant
calling, but lately been drawn to bushwhacks and the smaller, less popular
peaks. Any adventure involving the the woods is a favorite. Love Baxter
State Park in Maine and Pemi wilderness in the Whites, in any season.
Franconia Notch in Winter brings a particular peace.
As I worked the New England 100, I'm finding more to love as I've been to
the farther reaches in Vermont and Maine, and beyond. Years ago I
traveled to Europe and loved it for its history and architecture; hope to get
back in the coming years, especially to explore its mountains and
: Avid hiker all year-round. Completed two rounds of the New
England 100 Highest, the second one in Winter. Three winter
expeditions into Baxter State Park, have also hiked in the
Adirondacks, and completed solo ascents of Mt. Adams in the
South Cascades of Washington State (12,281') and Mt. San
Gorgonio, the tallest peak in southern California at 11,503'.
14er peaks in Colorado, and even higher destinations like
Everest Basecamp are solidly on my bucket list.
