About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Meet all the cool people I can in San Francisco - gotta catch them all!

ABOUT ME

Super chilled and laidback easy going guy. Recent business grad and working in Internet/computer stuff at the moment. I loves tech, science, design, movies, books, art, music, theatre! However my love for food and drinks reigns supreme. Recently I've been on a huge Crossfit, and personal development binge, which has been fantastic. If I had to slot myself into a religion, that would be Kindess.

Trivia: Pain au Chocolat monster. I can pour rosettas and hearts on your lattes. I can shoot some amazing wedding photos. I've placed in business case competitions. I secretly (not so secret anymore) love RomComs. Learned how to ride a bike at 22.

PHILOSOPHY

“Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.”

- Buddha
