“It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out of your door...You step into the Road, and if you don't keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to.” J.R.R. Tolkien
As children we’re told stories that fill us with dreams, wonder, and adventure! This March, I plan on leaving the Midwest to embarking on a dream I’ve longed to pursue for years: Thru-Hike the Appalacian Trail. I make my living working in construction, but am trained as a theatre performer, and love to sing and dance. I enjoy a great group of good friends, family and my wonderful partner, Natalie. But for now, I must part with them for this journey that I hope will continue to engergize my lust for life. See you on the trail!
