With the river, bosque, ditchbanks, orchards, gardens, livestock and big fields to play baseball in, I was never bored as a kid, everyday year-round was an adventure. As I grew older, I started to venture out and explore beyond the North Valley. I explored the foothills of the Sandia Mountains, the Jemez Mountains, Tent Rocks, Bandelier National Monument, Chaco Canyon, I started hiking and camping at a young age. I fell in love with New Mexico at a young age and, to this day, still love exploring what this beautiful state has to offer. I am extremely passionate about New Mexico and love to share my experiences and NM's hidden treasures with friends and travelers from around the world!
When Breaking Bad started filming in New Mexico, I was excited to see Albuquerque and the surrounding areas on television. When episodes started to air, I was thoroughly impressed, the cinematography was absolutely stunning! When I'm traveling outside of New Mexico, It makes me happy when I tell people I'm from Albuquerque and they ask me if I know Walter White.
As a NM local, I know all the great NM travel destinations as well as hidden treasures along the way, and will promise you a True NM Local experience!
