Description:I was born and raised in Kentucky, where I just relocated from. I lived about two hours from the famous Red River Gorge and, despite 14 mpg in my ’88 Toyota Land Cruiser, Gertrude, would make it out there as much as I could for a day of climbing or hiking around with my girlfriend. I skateboard in the summer, snowboard in the winter, and, during a brief stint as a Hawaiian resident, tried my hand at surﬁng. I love to cook and am a huge advocate of local, seasonal food and the deindustrialization of the food supply in the US. I love to travel, having recently spent a month backpacking through the Portuguese countryside and volunteering on an organic farm. I also have the world’s craziest cat, Brain, but I wouldn’t trade him for anything. I graduated from the University of Kentucky in May of 2010 with a degree in Marketing, which, let’s be honest, doesn’t set me apart from anyone qualified to get a job in marketing. The things I learned at UK aren’t the things that will help me succeed in a real job. It’s my badassitude. What is badassitude? It’s hard to qualify, but bear with me. Imagine a blend of Denzel Washington’s level-headedness when the whole world is swinging machetes at you and, oh yeah, you’re blind. Couple that with a MacGyver-like ability to improvise and adapt, like making a bomb out of a sleeping bag, some vodka, and an oxygen tank to escape an avalanche careening down the mountainside. Not that I’ll be building bombs, per se, but you get the idea. I’m quick on my feet, calm in the face of crazy, and quick to adapt.
