Married in 2018, technically we're still newlyweds...but we've already created enough Mixed Adventures to last a lifetime! Our home base is in Maryland but our hearts are wherever our Mixed Adventures take us!
I was born and raised on a farm in rural Illinois. Growing up our travel was pretty limited but I do have a fond memory of a family road trip to the Grand Canyon with my parents and three sisters in our panel-sided station wagon (seatbelts optional!). I joined the US Air Force after high school and was fortunate to experience the world, starting with my first duty assignment off the coast of Greece on the island of Crete (yes, it was as amazing as it sounds!). I'm constantly planning our next adventure and if too much time passes between trips the "travel itch" gets real!
I consider myself an adventurous, thrill-seeker of life! I like to do just about anything. Mountain biking, skiing, swimming, off-roading and definitely traveling. With family roots in Louisiana, I've been traveling back and forth from Maryland to Louisiana since I was young. Growing up, my family traveled frequently, from local road trips to far away places including Europe, Hawaii and Brazil. Can you imagine seeing Brazil through the eyes of a teenage boy? My love for travel was likely born that trip and continues to this day!
