I was born and raised in southern California, and I'm in a five year relationship. I recently got my Master's in Business Administration and am taking some time off for health reasons, and hopefully some traveling.

I've done things most people never get to do, and I've gone through things most people never have to go through.

I'm very curious and open to change. New experiences and my loved ones gives my life meaning.
