I grew up in Atlanta, Georgia, and graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) with an Industrial & Systems Engineering degree, but I moved to Los Angeles, California, in 2005 to work in the entertainment industry.
I spent a few years doing Visual Effects in features, but my passion has always been with Post Production. I am currently an Assistant Editor in scripted television and have worked on a number of popular shows for Fox, ABC, USA, TLC, Discovery, History, Disney, and Cinemax.
I spent a semester studying in Madrid, Spain, while in college and loved traveling while I was there. In addition to seeing much of the United States, I've also been to France, Portugal, Italy, Belgium, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Germany, England, Scotland, Ireland, New Zealand, and Australia. Next on my list are Brazil and Argentina!
I'm a very laid back person who enjoys relaxing most weekends and just hanging out with friends. I like running as well as playing golf, soccer, basketball, and tennis. I've been skydiving twice so I can also have a bit of an adventurous side when I want to. I love music so I usually have Spotify streaming throughout the day.
As a guest, I would likely be gone most of the day adventuring in the city and would look forward to some peace and quiet in the evenings to wind down and re-group. I will be traveling alone and do not smoke. I am also an Eagle Scout, so I am very respectful of people and their property.
I've been reading guide books so I have a general idea of the spots that I am interested in seeing, but I am always open to suggestions and tips on things to do. Unfortunately, I don't speak Portuguese, and I need to brush up on my Spanish, but I hope that will not be a big road block during my trip.
In today's incredibly-connected world, I know it's hard to believe, but I am not on any social networking sites. If you have any further questions, though, please contact me, and I will be glad to answer.
