I grew up and went to school in New England and although I always wanted to get away, somehow I have stuck around and the area has grown on me! Outside of work I have a passion for life. I really enjoy living in the moment and enjoying good times with friends, family, co-workers and sometimes even strangers. I really like helping people and spending time with people but the occasional time alone is nice as well. I have a huge heart and love getting to know people. Staying active is a big part of my life. I'm always looking for a good hike, bike trail or new adventure.
I love to try new things and go new places and prefer to surround myself with people who do the same! I have a soft spot for nerds, someone who can make me laugh but also challenge me, and of course, a kind heart goes a long way.
I am a laid back guy who enjoys life to the fullest. I got my PhD in a science-related field and am now doing science (surprising, huh) as a career! Otherwise I am breathing air, getting vitamin D from the sun, eating, sleeping, spending time with friends and family, reading, and playing sports. I love spending time with friends and family.
I like good coffee and tasty food (who doesn't!). I like reading about current events, watching sports (especially basketball and soccer) and reading both fiction and non-fiction. I like going out to new and old places and staying in can be relaxing as well. I also love traveling (have been to many places in Europe, Middle East and Carribean) and plan on doing more in the near future!
