When I think about things that are big, epic, exciting, and life-changing, I think about the outdoors. I grew up in the country catching turtles and frogs. In college, I studied the environment in general and forests in particular. I’m currently doing my best to live a simple, intentional life that’s never too far removed from nature. When I’m not working or writing, I can usually be found in my garden or off training for my next triathlon, bike race, or other adventure.
