About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

**A WORK IN PROGRESS**

ME ---> 20-something.Analyst.Traveler. Idealist.Explorer.Dreamer.Drinker.Dancer.Burner.Lover.Giver.Fun-loving.Joker.Humanitarian.Patient.Curious Human Being... with just a tad bid of crazy lol (in a good way of course)

With that said... I am a travel addict, I travel as often as possible. I spent 6 months studying in Nantes, France – I live to see the world, explore new places and enjoy new things. I can be a little bit of a party animal (sometimes) + I got happy feet so the dancefloor is my playground. The only thing I enjoy more than traveling is meeting people who are different, whether it's culture, creed (or anything really) everyone has something to offer.

I am a certified drinker ha ha – I drink pretty much everything… from beer or bourbon to wine or whiskey. Avid sports player/watcher (cycling, football, soccer, basketball) Live life like it's one big party so you better make the most of it and live like every day was a gift.

EDDY

I am a strong believer in cultural intergration. I wonder about how other people live this thing that we call life so that's why I travel to see for myself.

PHILOSOPHY

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The trouble-makers. The round heads in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status-quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify, or vilify them. But the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

-Jack Kerouac
