I didn’t mean for that to be dramatic.
I’m a young human bean (pun intended because I eat an absurd amount of beans, ask me about the wonders of garbanzo and black) growing through life just like every other human bean on this planet.
I am a creative addict, social media producer, video creator, website entrepreneur, photographer, writer and editor, amateur cook (and by that I mean I’m not good at cooking), outdoors enthusiast, kombucha/beer-lover, and champion globe trekker & trip planner.
I’ve been to 23 countries so far, can’t roll my tongue, and often get compliments on my whistling abilities.
I studied psychology (w/ some neuroscience & tech. management) at UC Santa Barbara, a haven on the coast of sunny California, and resultantly know how to have an incredible time while managing real life.
I also studied abroad in Lund, Sweden for a year, and have spent several months traveling solo/living remotely in Southeast Asia, East Asia, and Central America.
Ooo, and I just moved to New York City. A dream I’ve had since I was 7 years old (perhaps a dream a lot of people have had since they were 7 years old).
All of the people I’ve met so far in this wonder-filled life have stuck around, smiling. You know, which means they have an extraordinary amount of endurance and patience. Unless my mom paid them. Either way, I would like to continue meeting such people (so Mom if you’re there keep the cash trees flowing).
In the future I would love to work as a creative director (why did I study psychology, you ask? Because I would like to work as a creative director that can read minds) .
I’m also pretty into mindfulness, compassion, and all that good stuff.
I also like a lot of other things because I’m a person and people tend to like things.
Why are you still reading this.
Anyways, that’s about 1/1000th of who I am. Was it too generous? Did I leave out the fact that I take under three minute showers and can poop as fast as I can pee, not because it is socially unacceptable, but because it is so impressive that you might not believe anything I say?
Who’s to tell.
I would apologize for my humor/lack of social decency but I’m not going to. Just trust that I’m a presentable and fun friend to have around.
