About Me

Hello and welcome to my page. I really love traveling and only recently discovered Virtual Tourist, so I don't have a lot of pages made yet. Working and actual travel always seem to get in the way!

I traveled a lot when I was younger, going cross-country from Rhode Island to California with my parents when I was 6 and going to Europe a few times as a teenager. With school, work, and graduate school I didn't have much time for travel until I completely finished school. Now, my wife and I try to travel as much as my vacation time and budget will permit.

My favorite thing to do when traveling is seeing unique and beautiful landscapes and wildlife. I especially love waterfalls and travel much within the my home state of North Carolina to hunt for waterfalls. I also enjoy photography, but I'm not particularly good. Traveling does provide a great way to build my skills though! And I also really love hiking. I think it's the best way to get out and really see a new place and learn about it.
