I love education more than I love schooling and that is one of the best things about being a part of the Outback team. At Outback, I have noticed that students learn in a natural, curious way surrounded by the beauty of nature rather than being cooped up in a classroom surrounded by distractions and schedules. It is my sincere wish that every young person could experience the transformative power of nature the way participants at Outback do. I love watching youths come alive and develop the attributes needed to become productive adults, such as confidence, resilience, and improved communication and relationships.
I love adventures of all kinds, especially in the great outdoors! I have been to the top of some of the highest mountains and to the bottom of some of the deepest caves. I have taken my mountain bike over iconic trails and my packraft over iconic waterways. I am an enthusiastic ping-pong player. I love playing strategy board games. I am unabashedly ingrained in “nerd culture”, with a special affinity for Lord of the Rings and Avatar the Last Airbender. I love solving clues and puzzles, especially in escape rooms and with treasure hunts. I love reading books and discussing important ideas. I conscientiously strive to “be the change” I hope to see in the world.
