Born August 26, 1986 in Bakersfield, CA. Departed (escaped Bakersfield) for bigger and better things summer 2004. Traveled the grapevine to Paradise a.ka. Santa Barbara where I spent (and spent $) 4 interactive years to become a Chancellor’s Scholar and graduate of the class of 2008 at UCSB majoring in Business Economics with specialization in Accounting and minor in Philosophy. Shortly after graduating, I took a ride down the PCH and landed in Manhattan Beach where I am currently working for Deloitte and Touche. However, I’m noticing I am the goose and everyone else is a duck; I am the square that does not fit into the circle. I’m not a professional football player nor am I the world’s best auditor. Neither is something that keeps me awake at night. That being said, I’m looking for other like kind geese and squares to start in a new career focused in social media/marketing/advertising/PR. I love people, my iPhone, and the internet–basically any dorky social media outlet. I think outside the box and would rather invest time playing my guitar then studying for the CPA (true story!) I believe in investing my time into what makes me happy everyday rather then investing my time only to enjoy the weekends.
If I was an ingredient I would be Salt because it enhances any other flavor. If I was an article of clothing I would be mittens because you don’t know how much you love them until you put them on. If I was a store I would be IKEA because everyone at least thinks about shopping there once.
I’m setting up this blog to provide other’s insight into who I am and to help give those who know little about me a little bit more to think about. Feel free to email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org as I am quick to respond with more fun facts about me.
