Greetings! I'm Kyler Smith, a third-year finance major at Linfield College, in McMinnville, Oregon. I grew up and still spend my summers in the fantastic city of Portland, Oregon, while spending most winter holidays in our family's second home in Goodyear, Arizona. I enjoy living life and surrounding myself with good people, ideally doing both while sitting next to a campfire on a warm Oregon summer night (although I still have a tendency to burn the living hell out of marshmallows to this day).

I'm still learning a lot about many things in the world at my young age, and I believe there's no way to enjoy this chapter of my life more than trying new things and travelling around the nation and the world... which is what I'm usually doing when the schedule and wallet gods are smiling! To this point, I have visited 18 U.S. National Parks, and traveled to Europe twice, and I will be backpacking New Zealand this coming January, something I am excitedly looking forward to!
