Me in 30 Seconds (inspired by Derek Sivers)


Pennsylvania native, raised in the southeastern United States, living in Costa Rica and Atlanta.


I’ve been an entrepreneur, chess club president, soccer team captain, history and literature major, gamer, boxer, law school student, tech startup teammate and philanthropist.


I started Brawl for a Cause, a nonprofit that empowers everyday people to literally fight and fundraise for causes close to their hearts. Hear the story here.


Now, I’m a digital marketer, travel agent, and nomadic story teller.


I’m fascinated by new tech, positive psychology, stoic philosophy,  self-improvement, constructive competition and weird people.


My favorite sport is boxing; book is The Alchemist; series is Harry Potter; author is Thich Nhat Hanh; movie is Forrest Gump; music is funk; dance is swing; game is chess; hero is Muhammed Ali.


Gemini, ENFJ/P, Minimalist, EQ > IQ. Here’s what I’m up to now.
