I'm a bit of this and a bit of that. Mostly a geek kind of person. I'm studying landscape management at BYU with an emphasis in landscape design. I've also been classically trained on the trumpet and miss playing a lot. This is something I often forget, but music is a huge part of my heart. I like good food, both eating it and making it. I love hiking and backpacking. I tend to be a very passionate person with many interests. Most recently, I've been smitten by a need to learn more about what it means to be a man of good character and loyal patriotism. I regularly read The Art of Manliness blog and have started reading the political documents that helped form our nation, along with writings from the prophets on the matter.
