About

I grew up in VA usually hunting, fishing or involved in sports of all kinds, I especially enjoyed free climbing and wondering thru the thousands of acres of woods that surrounded our home. There were 14 ponds, a river and all the deer, turkey, fish, small game you could want and even a bear on rare occasions.

I spent more time racing and exploring on the infamous 3 wheeler as I grew older and have now migrated to mountain biking and hiking when I'm not playing golf. I have paired my passion for the back country with the comfort of the hammock and am planning on a few section hikes on the AT this spring. I also hope to combine my mountain biking hobby with hammock camping to do a little bikepacking this spring as well.
