I love the Pacific Northwest! I've lived in Washington State all of my life. I feel blessed I grew up in an area with such abundant, diverse natural beauty and I try to spend as much of my time enjoying it as I can. For me that means peak bagging, hiking, scrambling, backpacking, snowshoeing, snowboarding, trail running, sport climbing, caving, camping, fishing, tubing, walking my dogs, mountain biking, practicing primitive survival, or introducing new people to the great outdoors. If I'm not somewhere in the forest I'm probably in the lab making music with my crew, 138 Kings. It's nature and music that keep my soul content. That pretty much sums it up.
