For the most part, I am pretty laid-back and don't believe in
taking anything in life too seriously (often expressed through
sarcasm). Although, I am also idealistic and committed to create
positive change in the world around me. I enjoy spending time
outdoors, especially near the water (kiteboarding, kayaking, cliff
diving, etc.). I have moved all my life (6 states and 3 countries)
and just got back from 4 years in the Peace Corps.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently, I work for a non-profit organization that works with
schools and businesses throughout the Atlanta Metro area. I am
getting my MBA (mostly because its free thanks to the Peace Corps),
and hopefully, that will lead to starting my own business in the
near future. Other than that, its get outside and have some fun
with my pup.
I’m really good at
Being curious! I love to take my mind in different directions and
learn about new things. Always on the look out for random
opportunities to develop new skills and gain new knowledge that
make life more interesting.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Ishmael by Daniel Quinn, Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael
Pollan, The Power of One by Bryce Courtenay, Guns, Germs and Steel
by Jared Diamond, The Unsettling of America by Wendell Berry, and
many more ...
Movies: on a documentary kick currently and my favorites are always

nostalgic about Counting Crows and Weezer.

The six things I could never do without
1) A sense of independence and self-sufficiency
2) Having a dog
3) Shorts & Flip-flops
4) New ideas
5) A good pillow
6) Chipotle Burritos
I spend a lot of time thinking about
... how to work for myself (social entrepreneurship).
On a typical Friday night I am
decompressing from the week and giving my dog the attention he has
lacked all week long.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I love disney movies ... so much so I named my dog Baloo after the
bear in Jungle Book.
