  • Description

    I am a United States, California native looking to get outside the bubble where I both grew up and went to college and worked in order to explore the world.

    I am looking to learn more about other cultures, languages, and ways of life. I plan to start by increasing my fluency and knowledge of the Spanish language with a trip to Spain.

    I am a fluent English speaker and writer. I have done software engineering and can share what I know of computers and programming. I am also a singer-songwriter, musician, and multi-instrumentalist, so I can share my love of music with you as well (singing, violin, piano, guitar...)

    I worked for several years as a software engineer in the video games industry (Blizzard), and have been taking time lately to explore my artistic side, especially in the realm of music. My latest artistic endeavors have included performing with an improv troupe, figure skating, and playing the violin. I really enjoying new artistic pursuits, especially when I can share them with those around me.

    I am an exceptionally friendly, positive and athletic person. Always interested in some epic sports or a philosophical conversation.
