Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I thought I would highlight a couple of things that are important
to me and hopefully we share a few:
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 50 countries for
either fun or work. Traveling reminds me how much the world has to
offer. Recent places I have visited include Cambodia, Uganda and
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
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 work in partnerships for a large tech company helping to
develop internet access in Sub Saharan Africa.
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 during graduate school working on microfinance
projects (tough life I know!).
