I like doing new things and have a thirst for knowledge and experience. I grew up in the Bay Area, but have travelled to many places around the world. I have a myriad of different interests, and seemingly unrelated hobbies. I appreciate the uniqueness in others and find everyone interesting in their own way.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
I've been thinking a lot about time. I was at the beach today looking over the crowds and imagining the scene sixty years ago. The sounds of the waves, the random conversations, the laughter, and how we are all connected through time.
I've also been reflecting a lot about my life recently and what success really means to me. It isn't about meeting other people's expectations, but feeling comfortable in your own.
"People won't remember what you did, but they will remember how you treated them."
