What activities or events would you like to see the group offer?

Bike adventures, as well as hiking and camping trips. Kayak trips would be awesome. I'd also be down with just getting together for a game of kickball or a campfire somewhere.

What is your occupation? Area of study? (if applicable) Dream job? (money aside)

I am an English Composition teacher and a grad student at the University of New Orleans. Dream job? I would love to be a travel writer. I would also love to work with animals or animal welfare. Or be a raft guide. Or just somehow support myself by mountain biking all day. Am I too old to attempt to go pro? Ha!

What are you a nerd about? (Interests/Hobbies)

Trees. I love trees. The more dramatic, the better. Campfires. Running. Lacrosse, longboarding, mountain biking, mountain boarding, Music, poetry, and writing

What are your favorite places to camp or hike or to be active outdoors?

Mountain biking at the Bonne Carre Spillway, skating and biking the Mississippi River Trail, running on Bayou St. John and in City Park. I just got a kayak for the bayou!

How did you become interested in the outdoors?

How can you not be interested in the outdoors? I've enjoyed going on adventures since I was young and nothing beats the adrenaline rush of being in nature.


I moved to New Orleans from Seattle and am missing the outdoor activities! I love to get out and be active and I want to find great activities around here!
