I was born and raised in New Hampshire and have lived here most of my life. I spent three Summers in the Colorado Rockies visiting my brother during college and moved out there for a year from 2009-2010. I have a passion for hiking and started to appreciate the peaceful treks through natures beautiful surroundings when I started my hobby for photography. I've always been a competitive athlete and excelled in basketball and soccer, but now hiking and nature exploring with my dog and friends is the exercise I enjoy! For me, it's not just about the workouts involved, but the peace of mind and beauty of the outdoors!
