About Me


To maintain a level of worldliness and avoid becoming too 'american' by engaging people from all over the world.


I like to go out, and enjoy life, because I know that at the end of the day I enjoy deep conversation and meaningful interaction. I enjoy a balance in everything in my life. I'm a hard-working and passionate person. I was raised by introverts but in my heart I'm an extrovert.

I own a successful small business that specializes in Computer Support. I also do Internet and Web Marketing. I'm also the Treasurer for a non-profit public speaking club called Toastmasters.


I treat others with kindness and assume that they are educated, worldly, and accepting of others' differences. I am quick to become dismissive however, to those who are ignorant and judgemental.

Teach, Learn, Share
