About Me


To have a better understanding of the world


Hmm.... To be honest, I don't like to write about myself, mainly because people tend to change all the time and it is hard to capture everything. I will go over the basics and promise to capture everything I can think of.

I have many favorite activities but what stands out the most is riding, reading, and learning. Please don't think I'm a geek....well maybe not a complete geek. By learning I don't mean just the book smarts but also getting a better understanding of life and all of its aspects. In short, since one of the greatest gifts of being a human is the ability to learn, I try to take the full advantage of that.

I try to keep my life fairly active and as stereotypical it sounds, I try to do everything. For example I've been sky diving, and even though I didn't enjoy it as much as everyone else said I should have, I'm glad I got that experience.

For a job, I have recently become a design engineer. I was able to get almost exactly what I want in my career so it looks like I'll be sticking around. My coworkers are really nice, so I don't have any problem with that.

One thing I must confess is that I don't travel much. However, I do understand that I miss out on a lot of interesting experiences and I am planing to change my traveling routine. As a matter of fact, that is why I decided to join the couch surfing crowd


This is an interesting section... my philosophy is to live my life in a way that when I look back at it later, I won't think "ohh, I should have done that", but rather "I was there, I saw, I conquered, and moved on to different things"
