Short Bio

I grew up in southern New Hampshire, about an hour and a half drive from Boston. The area is popular for the proximity
to both the seacoast and the appalachian mountains. I'm studying business adminsistration with a concentration in
information systems.

Activities and Interests

Hiking

Hiking is the preferred term, in Canada and the United States, for a long, vigorous walk, usually on trails (footpaths), in the countryside, while the word walking is used for shorter, particularly urban walks. Many of my friends from New Hampshire enjoy hiking like I do. We spend much of our summers finding new and exciting places around the appalachian foothills to go hiking.

Road Running

Another physical activity that I enjoy is road running. I have been running regularly since high school and find it is a great way to relieve stress and stay active. My favorite place to run are backroads in the countryside and in parks within cities like Boston.

Photography

Photography for me has been a creative outlet since early high school. I've made many friends while learning about and practicing the process of taking photos (as well as developing film and printing photos in a dark room). Learning about cameras and how to edit photos is very fun for me and I always enjoy discussing it at length with others interested in the subject!
