About Me:

I'm a soon to be empty nester with a passion for travel, exploration, and seeing the world from the non-touristy standpoints. I love the outdoors and enjoy biking, hiking, rock-climbing, backpacking and camping and generally just exploring. Once the nest is empty I'd love to explore with a like-minded partner (but just friendship is ok too!). Someone who loves the water, enjoys sailing and boating and the joys and pains that go with it. Who wants to get off the boat at ports and bike/hike/explore the places the wind takes us (and sometimes just laze away in a secluded cove). I'm a tech nerd and an athlete. I work in cancer research as an informatician and data scientist. And I play any sport I can get enough people together for, with a passion for tennis. I love to read, play games, explore photography and work on projects that require figuring things out and using your hands to build and fix things.

Sailing Experience:

My sailing experience all comes from my pre-teen and teenage years aboard the family 28ft Hunter sloop that we'd take out for weekends or down the ICW in the summer. Not much sailing experience since. I'm planning on taking a weeklong live-aboard sailing course (preferably in the Virgin Islands) to get ASA certs 101,103,104, and 114. If anyone is interested in joining me that could be a great way to get acquainted with one another in the company of others while working our tails off to learn everything.
