I love the Seattle area. I moved her in grade school, hated it and then went to college and found an appreciation for this region as my home. Every home is awesome, and as kids we don't get to choose where ours is located, but looking back on my childhood I realize just how great this place is.
I picked up skiing three years ago and try to take advantage of every opportunity I have to make it up to the mountain. If you're looking for a skiing buddy then I'm your guy. I just wish I could I could have started earlier, but I played a competitive soccer in the fall and winter all the way through college that always took precedent.
This past summer I decided to spend a month in Central America before I went back to school for my MBA. In July and August I left for Costa Rica and Panama with just a backpack and three months of spanish under my belt. It was an awesome experience, and now I have the itch to see the rest of the world. I came home and started listing all the places I want to see. Next on the list is East Asia, or maybe Brazil or Australia and New Zealand. I don't think you can go wrong with any option. But, during my trip I came to a personal realization that having so many amazing experiences is way more fun when I'm sharing them with someone I care about. I feel like I have so many things working for me right now, but things are always sweeter when there's someone to share with.
So here I am.
