Here it goes: I was born in Oakland and grew up in the San Francisco North Bay in a fairly non-American home to two professional parents, four siblings and plenty of visiting international students. Living near the water, I often fished on weekends and biked the community and coast. My parents focus of an international education and emphasis on music and athletics was foundational to who I am today and I cannot thank them enough for the opportunity they gave me. I am VERY close to all of my family and spend as much time as possible with them throughout the country (and world).
I have worked, lived and traveled around the U.S. and world and enjoy the newness of life and always embrace a challenge with a smile. Growing up with multiple languages and backgrounds gave me a global point of view and an adaptability and direction that drives me always to my next ideas and plans. I enjoy volunteering for those that are less fortunate and have always made time for this in my life.
I am independent and adventurous and don't like to sit long wondering what to do, I just do it. I am a outgoing person that is happy with the exotic or simple things in life. I do joke around and laugh allot and have a very playful and childlike nature. I can be very serious though and enjoy strategic negotiations and strategy sessions at work.
I’m really good at:
Figuring out how things work
Laughing at myself
Swimming (raced and coached for most of my life)
Making the best of the best out of only what is in front of me
