Quite frankly, I've been lucky in my life. I'm from a good/fun family, I strive for mind/body balance, and I have made great friends all over the world. Any of them will tell you that I have a kind soul, I'm honest, opinionated, and I will offer in need a helping hand to anyone. I'm a giver. As for the particulars, I love the travel and I've spent a number of years living in Europe and Hong Kong. Kaizan, arete of mind and body, balance and meaningful experiences are what I strive for, and one is just as likely to find me relaxing and/or sailing about the coves of Mallorca or soaking up the culture and history of Istanbul. Additionally, I consume volumes of books, as I'm an avid reade. Some of my favorites are Philosophy, current affairs, and History (the Medieval period, Greek/Roman, or the enlightenment period, in particular). Also, I'm a foodie, I love wine, great conservation, and I know my way around a kitchen. Lastly, I love to golf, snowboarding, basketball, film, and Krav Maga.
