Hello my name is Asher. I was born and raised in Durango, Colorado, in the southwest corner of of the state. My home is up against the border of our local national forest. This is where I first discoverd my love for nature. I spend a lot of time hiking through the forest observing the plant life and wild life, flourishing in an amzing ecostyem. Other than enjoing the hot summers and long cold winters I love watching flims, reading books, painting, and listening to a multitude of music. I chose Dragons because I want to challange myself to break out of my comfort zone. At the same time I’m excited to be immersed in a new culture and language. Currently, I’m shoveling lots of snow, breaking in my new hiking boots, and eating all of my favorite foods. I look foward to meeting all of you and going on this adventure.
