Who am I? 22/M/Caucasian. Based in California… for now.   I grew up in Santa Monica, California, and I currently attend UC Santa Cruz as an Economics Major, History Minor.   It’s been fun so far, but I’m already thinking ahead to my travels after college.

Describe myself?

Active participant in all that life has to offer.  Currently learning more about the world, living a healthy, fulfilled lifestyle, and working towards starting a business. Also graduating college. In that order.  Gotta have solid priorities.
