I'm Jeff, originally from Southern California, however, now a Phoenix transplant. I'm an easy-going, relaxed individual who loves to smile and laugh. I'm a terrible planner, and I tend to find the best experiences in life come when you just get out there and do stuff. I can be sarcastic and cynical at times, but at heart I'm a humanist and I believe the greatest reward in life is found in helping others. I've been described as hard-working, but I'm doing my best to shake that particular descriptor (to that end, finished a six week backpacking trip in South America this summer!). Most of all, I like to travel, to meet new people and enjoy their company, and to teach and expand upon the (very little I know about the) world.
