I am searching for an adventure, for solitude, an escape from civilization, to refocus and revitalize my mind. I'm taking full advantage of the opportunity to sleep under the stars, walk miles a day in the wilderness and to simply bask in time. I am fascinated with studying our environment, health, and on improving the state of them, both independently and at Florida State University. This year, my girlfriend Morgan and I will be completing our first thru hike of the Appalachian Trail! We want to share our adventure with you as well!
