About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Improve and perfect my spanish language skills, visit more rural and less urban areas when next i travel, and show people around Montreal!

ABOUT ME

I am a small town boy from NJ-- when it came time for me to go to university, I decided it was time I got out of my comfort zone and gain some new experiences. I chose to go to Montreal to study and it was one of the best decisions that I have ever made! Since then, I have been working on my Spanish and entered International Development Studies and History with the goal of someday working internationally.

Soy un chico de un pueblo pequeno en los estados unidos (New Jersey). Yo decide que debo irme de los EEUU y fui a Montreal (Canada) para asistir universidad. Estoy estudiando Espanol y Desarollo internacional.

PHILOSOPHY

life's short, do what you love!

la vida esta corto, hace lo que amas!
