Born and raised in Staten Island New York, and despite my natural
surroundings never grew a blow out, never fake and baked, never
wore velour, and never partied on the Jersey Shore. I do however
bust a groove to hip hop, think NY pizza and bagels are the best IN
THE WORLD, have a very slight accent, and come equipped with the
standard east coast sarcasm. After leaving home I've Lived in RI,
OH, LA, and now San Francisco. Made life difficult for myself along
the way but learned from each failure rather than be defeated by
them. As a result I look at life with the glass half full, but with
the street smarts to be wary of bull. I strive to live an active
lifestyle and seek new adventures. I've seen almost all of the USA
and now working to experience more of the world.
It's been a great ride so far and it only keeps getting better!
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a Sr. Mechanical Engineer for a company in the Bay Area designing the things I've loved my whole life. I'm very passionate about my career, and work very hard to achieve my goals. As a result I tend to have long work days making my personal time precious and not something to be wasted. When not working I try to keep things balanced, with the scales tipped more towards the fun/adventurous side. I'm a city boy born and raised and love to play in town, but also greatly enjoy breaking away to disconnect, recalibrate, and enjoy nature.
I’m really good at
Using my imagination
Keeping my cool when the going gets tough!
Designing metal structures
Seeing the way things work
Getting concert tickets
Making people laugh just by laughing

My family (love my big sis and old man)

On a typical Friday night I am
"The same thing we do every night Pinky..."
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I often do my best and most creative thinking in the shower, as a
result you'll often hear me talking to myself in there.... I've
also been known to sing in there too!

You love to dance, cause it's always more fun when you shake what
Yo Mama gave ya!
