Of all the diplomas and degrees I’ve earned, the most rewarding was from high school. The International Baccalaureate curriculum is by far one of the most difficult and life changing programs I’ve ever endured, paving the way for foundations of self-discipline and organization as well as a lifelong passion for learning.

International travel has always been something my family has enjoyed together. From Hawaii to Iceland, we’re always looking for fun destinations to make great memories together.

As the saying goes, “Fortune Favors the Bold.” Running with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain with my brother was an ultimate bucket list item I’m proud to scratch off. Ask me about Dead Man’s Corner some day!
