Welcome! Thanks for visiting my page.

I'm a 25 year-old University of Oregon Graduate (Go Ducks!!) working and living in Portland, OR. I love it here, but am available for professional opportunities anwhere in the world. Denver, San Fransisco, Boston, and a few Texas cities are on my radar currently.

I'm down to earth, ambitious, genuine, and passionate about knowledge and money - I know what I'm worth and I know what I want. I love to laugh and can usually make others laugh - my friends tend to be witty. I can also be a little bit of a geek - innovative technology mesmerizes me and I enjoy spending time discussing ways to make the world a better place.

I'm fortunate to be part of an amazing family and I am thankful for each one of them - I owe a lot to the advice and love my parents have given me over the years. They tell me I was verycompetitive in sports even as a toddler and, presently, to a certain extent my approach to life is that of a competition; I learn quickly from mistakes to ensure I often succeed. I have many talents and work on honing them every chance I get. I'm not easily discouraged or convinced - I can stand my ground in most discussions.

Within 2 or 3 years I want to explore New Zealand with as many friends as possible and it's my goal to be (semi) retired by 40. When I'm not working or coaching baseball, I'm usually planning or enjoying good times with great friends. If you've made it this far, we should probably connect - Reach me on either of the social networking sites below and/or send me an email.

My favorite quote from "Into Thin Air" by Jon Krakauer:

"I grew up with an ambition and determination without which I would have been a good deal happier. I thought a lot and developed the far-away look of a dreamer, for it was always the distant heights which fascinated me and drew me to them in spirit. I was not sure what could be accomplished by means of tenacity and little else, but the target was set high and each rebuff only saw me more determined to see at least one major dream through to its fulfillment" - Earl Denman

Warmest Regards!
