About Me

to find a mission

i grew up in pittsburgh, but traveled and moved around a lot through school/work. my favorite thing to do is something that i've never done before. i work full time right now engineering stents to help ppl with diseased livers and i like it. im typically beering, yogaing, beaching, friendzing, playing, something. i'm friendly and responsible enough. a 10 on the "fun scale"
