About Me


To explore the world and its peoples, and grow from the experience.


I enjoy meeting new people and engaging in good conversation. I'm open to new experiences, particularly when it comes to food. I try hard to stay in shape, and love the beach, sunsets and the beauty of nature.

I have a deep sense of loyalty and commitment to my friends,and am an optimist when it comes to my belief in the capability of people to create positive change in their lives.

I love to laugh, and laugh often.


The goal of my life is to become the best human being I am capable of becoming. I want to be as compassionate, selfless, wise, honest, and humble as possible. I do not expect to ever become perfect, but a life spent in pursuit of these goals is not one that I consider wasted. It is the progress I make, rather than the destination, that truly matters to me.
