Born in Virginia and raised in Southern California, sand is in my blood. I grew up as a typical zinc-covered grom and joined the surf team as soon as I got to high school. Since then, my appreciation for nature has expanded to all parts of the world. I love camping in the forest, dancing in the desert, and trekking through the mountains. Any body of water I see, I'm liable to dive in naked.
I've spent a good amount of my life traveling and writing and I couldn't be happier to find a home in Surf Researcher.
