I have a strong connection with my family, even though most of them are down in Southern California where I grew up. The Peruvian side of my family is huge and some of my cousins are some of the most important people in my life. I value the people that have been there with me through all the ups and downs and have a really close core group of friends, even though nowadays we're spread all over the US.
I love to travel and do so every chance I get. I studied abroad in Milan for four months and have been visiting Peru almost once a year since I was 8 months old. I recently got back from two weeks in Australia where I dove the Great Barrier Reef and want to continue diving.
I work hard and am dedicated to succeeding in my career and am doing my best to do what I can to get ahead in life.
During the week I'm a CPA working for EY in the financial district. I've always been good with numbers and my job gives me a good balance of working in teams and mentoring staff, managing client relationships, and letting out my inner nerd when I'm working on something technical.
On the weekends I'm catching up on errands, at the bar with friends, watching a movie at Kabuki Theater, having a five spice chicken or duck sandwich at my favorite Vietnamese restaurant, or cooking a good meal.
