I grew up in northern California and came down to go to UCLA. I moved to New York after college and lived there for three years. I was an investment banker for Lehman Brothers, of all companies. I left a few months before they went bankrupt. I had a great experience and I wouldn't trade it for anything, but it was the stereotypical experience with long hours and all that nonsense. The other side if it is developing a work ethic that can get you through anything.
I left after my program was done to go back to business school. I graduated from Harvard in 2010 and immediately moved back to California. After five years on the east coast I couldn't wait to get back. I grew up around boats and wake boarding is a very serious family competition. My dad is a ridiculous human who can flip with the best of them.
I've lived in LA for a couple years now and have a much better work life balance now. I quit investment banking and now run a cardiacnnurse staffing company. I absolutely love what I do, though as a small business owner I have seen it all.
All in all, I'm just a normal guy. I played all the usual sports growing up and love to still play basketball. Anything with a board is great too - surfing, snowboarding, wake boarding. ..though i don't skateboard. I like exercising and my diet is important to me. I'm pretty independent and self sufficient. I'm strongly principled and very loyal. Sometimes the combination turns into stubbornness.
At the same time, I'm not really the suburban prep kid. I have a strong personality but I don't really show it unless I like you. Honestly if someone heard me no filter before getting to know me at least a little bit, you'd probably not know if I were the ridiculously arrogant or hysterical. I have awful taste in movies and music, though I refuse to see it. I can admit that I have played Miley in the last month. I've seen every Friends episode multiple times. And Fast and the Furii were pure genius.
To sum up this rant...I'm not a creepball.
