Wanderer. Animal lover. Foodie. Photographer. Amateur do-it-yourselfer and cook--it’s hard to say what I obsess over the most. I love challenges and learning new things. Born and raised in Colorado, other than the 2 years I spent getting in touch with my Filipino roots. I love good beer, adventures and doing anything outdoors. When I’m not obsessing on something, at work or off getting lost somewhere, you can probably find me barbecuing with friends or family, working in my garden or curled up on the couch with a movie and a glass of wine.
