About Me


Gaining some perspective


I graduated not too long ago from school. Spent a year in Korea and it was a great experience. Then I lived in Beirut and had great times at beach parties, roof top bars, and meeting my boys and girls. I'm pretty much a laid back individual that is ready for anything.


keep learning

Music, Movies, and Books

If its new to me then I like it, except country haha.soft spot for super hero movies. even the bad ones.i need to start picking up books again.TV shows: South Park, Game of Thrones, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Daily Show&ColbertReportMusic: the variety of music i listen to is very limited even though i have a large library of songs; I just end up listening to the same songs.
