I was born on Long Island, New York but raised near the North Georgia Mountains: I have the ambition of a New Yorker who walks & talks far too fast but I also have the deep south's southern charm.
I live for hobbies that increase my heart rate to remind me about being alive: climbing (rocks, mountains, ice), scuba diving into the unknown, backpacking, feeling the burn in my thighs cycling, and practicing mindfulness with yoga. My hobbies honed skills in problem-solving, perseverance, self-discipline, and my understanding that preparation and planning with flexibility are the keys to success. I value overcoming fears and pushing limits to reach new heights. Figuratively and literally.
Additionally, I love traveling far and wide. Exploring new cities and countries to divulge in local cuisines makes me the happiest. Above all, I love submerging myself in other cultures by seeking and connecting people with different perspectives - learning more about how their experiences have shaped them into who they are today.
I absolutely love listening to their narratives. Their stories become a part of my story and a part of who I am.
