About Me


Looking to make some friends from far away places.


Well... I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and went to university in LA. I'm the creative director at a branding firm. I have a sarcastic sense of humor. I like learning about everything I come across and challenging myself as many ways as I can, be it athletically, mentally or creatively. I know the history of San Francisco and the Bay Area really well and like showing people around.


If people thought what to fix instead of who to blame, this world would be a much better place.

Stay hydrated.
