The ocean: There are some people who have an unexplainable attraction to the ocean and I am one of them. As a result, most of my hobbies are ocean related from surfing to scuba diving.
Traveling: I am fortunate to have traveled to over 40 countries for either fun or work. Traveling reminds me how much the world has to offer. Recent places I have visited include Cambodia, France and Qatar.
Family: I grew up surrounded by my extended family and they continue to be a big part of my life. I have a 5-year old nephew in LA, and I do whatever is necessary to maintain the favorite uncle status!
My career: I think it is important to take pride in and enjoy your career. My career has permitted me to live and travel all over the world, and has also allowed me to meet some amazing people along the way. I recently moved to SF to join a large tech company in finance role.
Social Impact: Not mutually exclusive to my career, I do eventually want to use my skills and experience to “do good”. I am very aware I have been privileged with a great family, education and career and others may not have been as fortunate. I spent a little time in the South Pacific last year working (tough life I know!) with a regional bank on a microfinance business plan.
Still reading? Brilliant! If you are looking for someone to share new experiences with drop me a note, and I would love to hear about what's important to you over a cup of coffee or a drink ...
