So if you’ve meandered onto this page, you’re probably looking to learn a little bit more about yours truly. Or maybe looking for embarrassing pictures, who knows?
So my name is Chris, and I’m a mid twenties guy from central New York state. You know, the greener part with the rolling hills and dairy farms and the ability to see the sky when you look up. Yeah, that part.
I was born and raised there before hitting community college and then moving a whole hour away from home (crazy right?) for college at a nearby state university. After a hectic two years there and one crazy summer of “what am I going to do with my life?” I graduated with a degree in biology and a passion for teaching.
Shortly after that I took a summer job a nature center near my home, the same one I had went to camp at when I was ten, where I had learned about environmental education that fateful crazy summer before my senior year. The next step was hopping in my car and moving a thousand miles south to work with a bunch of people I’d never met, in a state I’d never seen, doing a job I may or may not have been wholly prepared for.
After that? Well, a few thousand more miles of running, a couple more jobs, a few years of teaching under my belt and here I am… still not in central New York.
So either way, I hope we can get to know each other a little bit on here. Share some stories, memories, thoughts, and whatnot.
Heck, maybe we’ll run into each other someday.
PS – if you want to run into me, I like bars with craft beer, and parks with running water.
