Greetings! I'm a Project Manager who loves organizing things and making them operate efficiently; this is beneficial when it comes to traveling because I enjoy working out the intricate details of trips.
I've spent most of my life focusing on work, but I've recently come to my senses and now I'm committed to living out the following words of Mark Twain:
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
