About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Grow, Learn and Listen. I am on a mission to learn about myself, my family and the people and world I am part of.

ABOUT ME

I moved to the United States permanently when I was 14 years old, while at the beginning it was a big shock for me I have come to love my life here. I enjoy being active and love my parents for who they have been with me. Graduated from the University of Colorado in 2008 with a bachelors degree in Economics. Before, during and for a brief time after college I worked in corporate America, but soon discovered I loved being an entrepreneur. After some hardwork, sweat and tears I am now able to work from home and want to travel as much as possible while this opportunity remains. Although I am an only child, I am chill and easy to get along with.

PHILOSOPHY

I believe in living in the moment. I often tell myself and others that this single moment will never be here again therefore, we must do our best to feel it. It doesn't matter if its a great moment, a sad or boring one as long as you fully embrace it. I try my best to enjoy every moment and often question if what I am doing or how I spend my time is a wise investment of time.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

While in college I quit my job as a Financial Representative after a conversation with my roommate. 1 week later I began to pursue my passion of being an entrepreneur by starting a Web Design Company which changed the course of my life for the better.
