ABOUT ME

let´s see... first generation american, we speak french at home. after high school, i served a year in AmeriCorps NCCC, a national team-based volunteer program. travelled all around the southeast united states doing all sorts of nonprofit work. loved every minute of it. and then i joined the marines. stationed in california, good times. moved to spanish harlem, nyc, for a year after that and knocked out my sophomore year of college. did my junior year at indiana university, senior year in lima, peru. deployed to afghanistan with 3rd battalion, 25th marines in 2010. And I just wrapped up a 5,000-mile walk throughout Southeast Asia to raise funds/awareness for children living with clefts (http://smiletrek.org/smile-trek.)
