I moved west for grad school at Stanford. I promise to prove not all MBAs are boring or soulless. I couldn't be happier here. I'm a junkie for hiking, camping, skiing, climbing, and surfing, and look for any opportunity to get outside. While I love nothing more than the deep wilderness, I crave the energy and excitement of the city and am at home in both places.
I'm somewhat of a paradox. I'm a dreamer and romantic but also pragmatic. I find myself easily restless, but also love to stay put for a while and develop a strong sense of community. I'm a poet and a quant -- creative, musical, and artistic, but loving a good numbers problem. And yes i can be a nerd, but the kind people enjoy rather than pick on. Overall, I'm an optimist, and have a hard time not savoring the moment or seeing the beauty in the small things.
