Born in Dallas, Texas, I moved to the Boston, Massachusetts area with my family at the age of eleven. A recent college graduate, I decided to move to Racine, Wisconsin (on Lake Michigan between Milwaukee and Chicago, IL) in the pursuit of change and to be closer to my sister. Having been here close to a year, I have found employment with an online retailer of kitchen, bathroom, and other household fixtures and accessories. Furthermore, I have come to enjoy the friendly Midwestern attitude and respect just how cold a winter can be.
Being one of my most passionate interests, travel allows one to experience different cultures, climates, philosophies, and perspectives on society, the world, and the universe beyond. Moreover, through these different experiences, travel allows one to realize there are various paths to happiness and to be open (and welcoming) to the many changes in life. While visiting any location, I have to soak up as much of the local culture as possible. From the time I awake until the time I lay my head to sleep, I have to explore as many of the sights, sounds, and tastes in any one area as possible. This means visiting museums, trekking to natural wonders, learning the history, and enjoying the local cuisine.
Beyond travel, other interests of mine include meteorology, reading, international relations and comparative politics, my Three-toed North American Box Turtle, Aladdin, history, and Buddhism/Confucianism.
