My self-summary
Originally from Long Island, NY, previous hometowns include Boulder, Bethlehem, Florence (Italy), NYC, and Santa Monica. Recently moved back to SF last year after landing the dream job I'd wanted for 10 years.

Some say I'm too smart for my own good. They could be right. (I'm humble though). Truth is that I'm a fun person (who is fun to be with), and my thirst for adventure is still very much intact. I'm a positive person who always strives to have a positive effect on the people that surround me. I work at Industrial Light & Magic in the Presidio, and go to work everyday bringing imaginations, fantastical worlds, and sometimes people, to life, and the more you get to know me, the more you'll see a talented artist that will forever be afraid to fail. Currently looking for that special someone who you can't stop thinking about because the chemistry is so intense it occupies your every thought all day and night and makes you lose sleep.
