In my spare time I like doing things outdoors. On a sunny day I can often be found hanging out at the beach, or pool. Some of my friends have said I'm an "extreme sports junkie."

I love skateboarding, snowboarding, skimboarding, waterskiing, wakeboarding, and polevaulting. I get a natural high from trying new things, and I hope to go skydiving one day. Apart from the outdoors, I've always really enjoyed writing and painting.
