Human-power enthusiast (skis and bikes and running shoes are wonderful). Likes strong wifi and french roast coffee.
As a host I'm excited that so many want to visit Alaska - if you are like me you might keep coming back until you never leave! I've been in Anchorage and Girdwood since 2012. If you want recommendations for where to hike (or eat) I'm happy to share some of my favorites, though it's very hard to choose. I've had jobs as a backpacking and climbing guide, ecology researcher, and carpenter from the North Slope to Homer, which has given me just a taste of all this state has to offer.
