ONE PIECE OF ADVICE

Don’t overlook the importance of genuine connections and caring about people. When you truly care about someone, it shows.

HOBBIES

I am often playing classical guitar, working out, scuba diving (just not in Washington), and hiking the Olympics and Cascades. My #1 hiking recommendation in Washington is Upper Lena Lake.
