I lived throughout the Bay Area before returning to my hometown in 2013. In college, I was a design major but took another career path and invested 21 years in Ops Management. I'm currently a Supply Distribution Supervisor at a major hospital.
You can say I'm an old-fashioned guy who lives for some spontaneity and excitement. I do love variety when it comes to food, music, film, activities, and exploration. At this point in my life, I've learned to appreciate the little things and try to stop to smell the roses more frequently.
