At the moment, I'm a college student studying Financial Economics. I study this for practical reasons for my true passion is literature. The pursuit of the richness inherent in human culture will forever be my guiding goal in life. I want to discover as much of this world as I can for as long as I can. I'm an adventurer at heart. I seek out experiences that shatter the fabric of ordinary, mundane life. I try always to rid myself of the qualms and social hangups that prevent us from spontaneously pursuing the adventures we tend to dream about but never actually do. I believe that every single person is the protagonist of their own life's novel that unfolds with time, and that when the novel has been finished the entire story in itself should be as wondrous and as marvelous as possible. To me, anything less is a subtle tragedy. For this reason, I crave rich experience. I hunger for it. I want to create colorful memories that become eventful chapters in the novel of my life. I love connecting with people throughout the world. I believe that part of what makes experiences memorable is the collectiveness of the activity one engages in rather than the actual activity itself. In other words, sometimes, its the people you share experiences that help to make the experiences so grand. I am eager to build friendships and learn about everyone's story. I love the uniquely human pleasures of life: love, music, cuisine.
First and foremost, Literature! I'm an absolute fanatic. I also write myself and hope to one day become published. I have taken up running as a hobby to keep healthy. I also like to play guitar and sing. Occasionally, I write original music that I play for friends and at open mics. I also love comedy and am planning on trying my hand at it. I try to spend my time in a way that will comply with what I think is definitely a sensible code for life: A B C (Adventurous, Brave, Creative). I really enjoy "extreme" and outdoor sports like skydiving, scuba diving, hiking, rock climbing and caving. I'm also fond of museum trips.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I jumped out of an airplane at 13,500 feet. It was incredible. The experience was so wonderful to me that I can say with confidence that it is the closest to a "divine" sensation I have ever felt. I'll never forget looking down at my island and thinking that the small, small people and cars moved across and around and to each other as though they were the microscopic units of living being, interacting in order to sustain the life of the much larger organism they were part of.
