About Me


I'm a pretty easy going guy, raised by the beach in Santa Monica, California. Traveling is my greatest passion. I've been fortunate enough to have travelled over 23 countries, but there's still so much to see. I'm itching to get out there again soon. I play beach volleyball on the weekends, do yoga, and am usually always getting some kind of exercise. I love connecting with people from all over the globe, and getting different paradigms on life and the world. I'm always trying to keep things new and adventurous. I've been to Burning Man a few times. I'm a Graphic Designer, and am currently working for a fitness company in Santa Monica.

I've had some really great experiences through CS so far and have met some really great and interesting people!
