About Me.

Cedar Ridge Preserve, Dallas – January 2017

I’m a 30-something living in Texas.  Originally from Michigan, I’m currently working on moving north and/or west of the Lone Star State.  With my better half, pictured on the left, we have an adorable and goofy dog, two tuxedo cats, and a fish. See them here!

Current Project: 52 Hikes With Mike
I’m currently hiking each week for a year, or at least 52 times in 2017.
