Profile
I was originally born in San Francisco, CA and mostly grew up just south of the city near Silicon Valley. I went to The University of Colorado @ Boulder and decided to move back to Nor Cal when I finished. Currently, I work in development for a childcare company (ages 0-5). We build and operate childcare centers for large company's, hospitals, university's, the government, etc. we build sustainably and run our centers very eco-friendly.

But all I really want to do is travel... I have been to a lot of great places but there is SO much more of the world to see! I've been a certified diver for over 10 yrs and try and dive where ever I go! My most recent (international) diving trip was to The Bay Islands (Utilia), Honduras - I HIGHLY recommend it! Just last week I was down in San Diego diving a sunked battle ship that is 330 feet (110m) long! So amazing!!

I really enjoy enjoy meeting new people - hanging out, trading stories, etc. for all of you that are coming to California (I was living in San Francisco but recently decided to give Manhattan Beach a shot) it's SO fun. I live 2 blocks from the beach and love it, feel free to send me a message before you come and I will give you some good local tips about where to go and what to see.
