I’m all about meeting new people, making good friends and helping others in their quest for the outdoors. I’ve been an outdoor adventurist since before I was a Cub Scout. Experienced in most types of outdoor activities, land or water.

Are you a native Nashvillian or where did you live before moving to Nashville?

From Philadelphia > Tenessee > Florida > North Carolina > Tennesee (again)

Paddlers: What do you paddle - kayak or canoe? What type of water is your first preference, second and third?

I love to Kayack rivers, slow to fast. Not so fond of lakes unless it's very scenic or interesting. Love to sail on lakes.

What are your favorite things to do?

Hiking, Camping, Sailing, Kayaking, Canoeing, Backpacking and even Tubing. :D Bocce-Ball, Disc-Golf, Ultimate-Frisbee, Flag-Football and Volleyball are a few outdoor games I love. Other than that, it’s poolside fun. My true favorites are secret, but the cool ones I'll gladly share two of the popular ones I love: Cummins Falls (new) and Rock Island. Of course, anyone that gets to know me well will tell you that one of my favorite spots is in front of a grill with a pair of tongs in one hand and a pint of my recipe in the other :D Not that it matters, I’ve never been married, single and I have a 5-yo daughter that lives in Detroit. Guy or gal, you can expect a greeting and an invite from me to join me for some fun sometime. I enjoy fostering quality friendships with anyone worth being a friend with. I’m very laid back, drama free (actually allergic to it) and will happily invite those who can appreciate hanging out as friends and enjoying life while it’s here.

    Hey! I am glad you could use the tickets the other day at Cheekwood. I am just chalking the cost into a "stupid tax" category on my part!! Please, don't worry about paying me back. :-)

    Hi ZaqHydN: Yes, Centennial does have volleyball courts, and FYI, if you like to play, Team Green has a standing pickup game on Tuesday nights through the summer.
