I grew up in Fort Lauderdale, FL and spent the summers in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. I studied engineering at Duke, worked in NYC, and am now venturing a new life in Sao Paulo. I work in finance for a large bank and also run a digital marketing agency on the side.
I love rock climbing, white water kayaking, bonfires, star gazing, milkshakes, grapes, my grandma's home cooking, summer camp, attempting to create things out of clay, writing poetry, and all board games, especially when they involve settling Catan
I try to get outside the city most weekends to experience nature, but also love hanging out in the city. I could spend days upon days learning about our world (and others) at the natural history museum, it's absolutely fascinating. I also try to get to the park some days after work to throw around a frisbee, slackline, or just run around outside.
I once spent a year traveling around the world - Tonsai, Thailand is paradise and Milford Sound, New Zealand is epic. I'm looking forward to spending a couple more years traveling around the globe again, but this time, working interesting jobs all over. Maybe be a firefighter in Australia and a mountain guide in the Swiss Alps, work in a winery in Italy, research penguins in Antarctica, volunteer in Uganda, live in a Kibbutz and eventually hang out for a while in Cali, Boulder and Asheville.
I also love competition!
I love happy movies, Kung Fu films, and crazy directors. Some of my favorites are Out Cold, Pan's Labyrinth, The Matrix (the first one only), O Brother Where Art Thou, Pulp Fiction, and the Nightmare Before Christmas. Sadly enough, I also really like romantic comedies.
I love all music, even country, and especially bluegrass!
