Hello! I am an avid outdoors person, so if the activity is outside you will find me there! I love hiking, camping, learning primitive skills, bushcraft, hunting, canoeing, gardening... and the list goes on and on! When I am not in the outdoors, I am teacher. I teach design, woodworking, and sculpture to 6-12 grade boys at an all boys private school in Baltimore City.
