Favorite Outdoor Activity: Snowboarding/skiing/climbing anywhere in the glorious Colorado rockies.

Favorite National Park: Rocky Mountain NationalPpark

Favorite location in San Diego: Ocean beach

Favorite place to hang out on campus: wherever there is free food

Weirdest outdoor food you have created/ate: I ate a worm once

Craziest trip experience: watching sean almost pee his pants on the backpacking san jacinto trip

Worst injury from an outdoor trip: Got a concussion and broke my wrist from extreme tubing behind a boat one time

One place in the world: I would go to the south of france, right along the Mediterranean and climb, surf, snowboard and ski for the rest of my life.

Funniest outdoor experience: watching sean almost pee his pants on the backpacking san jacinto trip

Something that no one knows: I think tide laundry detergent is probably the best smell to ever grace my nasal cavity. If it was a cologne I would buy it just so I could smell like freshly done laundry.

Favorite piece of outdoor gear: homemade 30 inch fishtail longboard and my go lite puffy jacket.

Five things you wish you knew before freshman year:

      • it’s ok to drop a class
      • always try and make more friends
      • it will take more than 4 years to completely explore san diego (sadly)
      • move down to the beach, it’s probably the only time your life where you actually will be able to afford to live there (plus it’s pretty awesome)
      • learn to cook, it’s so much cheaper and tastier
