Welcome to my Hub Pages profile! If you like what you're reading, and want to share, sign up for a free account with!

I am a graduate of Colby-Sawyer College in New London, NH. I earned a B.S. in Business Administration with a minor in Community & Environmental Sciences. I have lived in New Hampshire, Montana, and now Vermont. I have traveled to Canada, Portugal and Costa Rica, and have visited many states across America. I enjoy any outdoor activity, especially hiking and camping.

I love music, but none of this rap crap. I'm into real music, with real musicians:

-Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, Richie Havens, Jason Mraz, Ray Lamontagne, Chris Michaud, Will Knox, Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals, Bela Fleck & The Flecktones, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, DMB, David Gray, Donovan Frankenreiter, Eric Clapton, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Jack Johnson, The Doors, Ryan Adams, Matt Costa, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals

The list goes on and on....

I also like to play music. I play, or try to anyway, the djembe and cajon. I love any kind of hand drum and will play it if I have the chance!

I have an awesome dog named Swarley. He's a Shiba Inu mix, and he's one smart puppy.

I'm a huge fan of the Celtics, and am a New England sports fan all around. Except in the case of soccer, in which the MLS doesn't really count. I am half Portuguese and I will support the Portguese National Team until the day I die.

I love food. I'll try almost anything. Oddly enough, I hate cooking, but I love when I make something that tastes good.

There is nothing better than being outdoors in the wilderness.

    Inmates getting married? I do believe this is a waste of my money and should not be a privilege that inmates are allowed!

    Dunkin' Donuts Sucks

    There is not a fast food restaurant out there that I despise more than Dunkin' Donuts. It absolutely sucks. The customer service right up to the way each franchise is managed is horrendous.
