I was born and raised in Texas, USA, but have lived in Arizona, Egypt, Venezuela and now in Shanghai, China. My profession is as a naturalist and a science educator.
You can usually find me exploring some aspect of nature or ecology through photography, hiking, birding, literature, fishing, camping, music or travel. I also enjoy cooking, relaxing in my own home, watching films, playing guitar and listening to music. I love food and enjoy trying different restaurants and street foods often. World travel has become a bit of an passion for me.
I have never been married and I do not have any kids. I have a big and close family back home and I miss them very much during the short times that I am away from them.
I love to shop and walk around the city, enjoying the ever-changing scenes of China. I enjoy helping other people and participate in community service opportunities as often as possible, including habitat for humanity, peace villages and local schools in China. I travel a lot and I love sharing new experiences both in life and in my work. 'Love my job and I work and play hard. I have worked hard to become financially independent and secure for my future - But for now, I am enjoying it all now instead of later. I enjoy witty, intelligent conversation with a good sense of humor.
