I'm an 2018 Appalachian Trail Thru-Hiker starting March 29th-ish. Mechanical Engineering major graduated from UNH in December 2017, I'm an eagle scout and have a dog named Bella who will be hiking by my side. I am an avid rugby player but also sing in an a cappella group, over all just a giant teddy bear with a little teddy bear by my side.
