About 

If a mature and motivated self-starter is what you are looking for, then you may like what I have to offer.

I am a versatile and well-rounded individual who has a “there is nothing that I cannot learn” attitude, and I learn fast!

My experience living around the world - in Hong Kong, Michigan, Ohio, South Korea, Belgium, Italy and now New York - has instilled in my a passion for traveling and an interest in interior and architectural designs of various cultures. 

I am an avid kite surfer, cookie lover, and new restaurant seeker.
