ABOUT ME: I grew up in central Pennsylvania and spent my summers camping, chasing lightning bugs, driving my dad’s pickup on dirt roads, and looking up at the stars. After graduating from Penn State with my engineering degree, I worked in England for a year and hopped around the UK and Europe as often as my bank account could afford. In 2015 I moved to Los Angeles and began exploring the west coast. Although the constant congestion in this city tests my sanity limits, I find balance by spending time by the ocean and taking weekend escapes to just about anywhere my wheels will take me!
