Born and raised in western North Carolina, I’ve always loved captivating landscapes, authentic food, and engaging travel. A Mountaineer alumnus, I earned my undergraduate and two graduate degrees from Appalachian State University. My wife and I reside in Boone, NC.

This website chronicles our adventures – travel and food, international and domestic. I’m excited to bring you along for the journey.
