I write this blog to tell about my life. I think it is an unusual one and who knows, maybe people will find my exploits entertaining? Or interesting? Inspire people to go out and have adventures and fun and stretch and challenge themselves? Be healthier? Live better? We’ll see how it goes.
I love to have adventures – I’m an avid climber, sailor, mountain biker, hiker, road-tripper, international traveller… and on and on. I like to do cool stuff. And as much of it and as often as possible. Interesting and/or weird things happen to me fairly often, and I embrace them and think it’ll be fun to tell about them. I’m in an office most days – and can always use a break from work. Though most years since 2008 I have managed to take at least twelve weeks off.
The highlights of what I have done are: travelled the world for 6.5 months, own a sailboat in Chicago, host bachelorette parties on my boat, have a successful business involved in trading and investing, climbed some major mountains in the Himalayas, Andes, the US, and Kilimanjaro in Africa, teach rock climbing part-time at a gym, kayak, ski, do triathlons, fish, surf, etc etc. If it’s fun or new or interesting or adventurous, I’m in.
