What countries or other states have you visited? Where is your favorite place located? And tell us why?

Mexico, Jamaica, the Bahamas, California, Florida, North & South Carolina, New Orleans (for the record, I am aware this isn't a state), Tennessee, Virginia, New York (lived there most of my life), Las Vegas (see above detail for New Orleans), Texas, and passed through other states traveling to some of the above locations. I can't say I have a specific favorite place right now. I've been to Bonnaroo in Tennessee a good number of times and really enjoy these kinds of music & arts festivals. I've enjoyed vacationing with friends and family on multiple occasions in Montauk. The beach and city atmospheres in the Bahamas are great, and the snorkling is awesome. Although it's been a while, I love the excitement of Vegas, as well as Atlantic City. I also enjoy the activities available in Ocean City, NJ.

What destinations and/or types of trips do you want to do with this group?

I'm open to a large variety of activities. That said, some things I hope to do, assuming time and/or budget are on my side, include hiking, camping, fishing, kyaking and/or canoeing, running outdoors, rock climbing (perhaps mountain climbing), zip-lining (when it isn't a detriment to where it's set up), swimming, snorkling, playing paintball, and probably a wide variety of other things I'm not thinking of right now. Many of these things I simply have never done and will probably need to learn how, but I hope such a community as this will be helpful in that respect. I would love to visit just about any state or country as long as budget allows. Some places in particular include Russia, Japan, China, Okinawa, England, France, Italy, New Orleans, Tennessee, Vegas, the (real) Jersey Shore, Canada, Alaska, and Hawaii.

What do you do when your're not traveling? (Describe work and hobbies)

I'm a personal trainer and music teacher. As a personal trainer, I get to work with a wide variety of people in various states of health and fitness and get to help them improve their quality of life, whether through fat loss, muscle development, improved posture & range of motion, training for sporting events or runs, or increased confidence and focus. As a music teacher, I currently work with children ranging from infants to Kindergarten age, and I hope to eventually complete my K-12 certification and work with elementary, middle, and/or high school age young people, as well as take on more private students. I also hope to break into composing music professionally and performing more regularly. I'm also a fitness adviser for a martial arts school, where I incorporate functional, intense and safe conditioning into martial arts instruction (NOT your run-of-the-mill cardio kickboxing class, or other fitness craze that throws caution with form to the wind and will go unnamed for now).

Tell us about your favorite outdoor adventure?

I enjoy exercising and practicing martial arts outdoors when conditions allow, and I enjoy running and hiking in the wilderness. That said, time has not quite enabled me to do these things outdoors very regularly as of late, and I'm looking to change that for the better.

Introduction

Hello! I've been looking to get out more and do some exciting things with my time, as well as meet more good and fun people!
