Los Angeles, CA - United States 46 yrs google+
I'm an avid enthusiast for all things outdoors -- hiking, biking, running, backpacking, climbing -- what have you. I love history, earth science, astronomy, meteorology, all the life sciences and especially insects. Don't ask me about remodeling unless you want to hear me talk for a long time.
