My self-summary
I'm an orphan boy raised by wolves in the jungle, and now I've made my way to LA! Moved to the westside about 5 years ago, and now I'm off to UCLA to get my masters! I'm super excited about going back to school, and I'm definitely going to appreciate it this time around. I thrive on moving forward in life with a hint of uncertainty, and going back to school allows me to accomplish both. I love to travel and have been to seventeen countries. My goal is to hit 30 countries by the time i'm 35. I should be going to hike the Inca trail to Machu Picchu or to Asia next summer. I'd love to move to a foreign country where I don't speak the language. I'm always envious of the people who just pack their bags and move to a different country. Adds an dimension to your life that would be incredible. Overall I'm an inquisitive, self-aware, philosophical, adventurous, and slightly mischievous. I prefer art galleries to bars, documentaries to movies, creating to consuming, weird to normal.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently funemployed for the summer awaiting the start of school in September. My days are comprised of reading books at the beach, practicing yoga, painting, and working out.
I’m really good at
Talking to anyone, photography, videography, and photoshop! I'm pretty good at being 100% comfortable in countries that don't speak English, or most situations that I'm out of my element for that matter.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'm always thinking about the future! I know you are supposed to live in the moment, but I'm always thinking about the future! When I think about the future, it is rarely about my future, but rather the future of things in general...news, events, technologies, etc. I love the sense of progress--of incremental improvements. We are going to live through some amazing times!
On a typical Friday night I am
Out and about on the westside, at the bars playing pool, going to bed early so i can volunteer in the morning, taking timelapses with my camera, listening to music, hanging out with friends
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I walk across streets to step on leaves that looks extra crunchy!

I hate two things in this world:
1) Racists
2) Asians
You should message me if
1) You know the difference between who and whom...haha jk no one knows that! (actually I do know the difference, but I've never made it has never made it into my everyday speak)

2) You have something interesting to say about a wide variety of subjects. I find it very attractive when people have specific knowledge about random subjects that come up.

3) You have traveled to a few countries other than Mexico, Canada, and Texas.

4) You are a fun positive person...no negative nancy's.

5) You have artistic qualities other than instagram filters

6) You like people watching!!!

7) You are going somewhere in life (you have actionable steps to get to where you want to be)
