Additional Comments:

I moved to Chicago to live in a loft. It had incredible views of the city skyline and lake. Winters don’t bother me. The secret is extra layers and traveling to warmer places! I now have a crash pad after putting everything I own in a 20x20 storage room. I’m on the road 75% of the time and work/vacation around the world with Chicago as my base.

Not bad for someone born and raised in Southern California. By the time I left South Pasadena for college, I had developed my passion for contemporary architecture, computers, and baseball. At Carnegie Mellon, I studied computers and business, took one marketing class, and barely graduated. Somehow I got a job offer from Price Waterhouse where I eventually became a senior marketing executive. But an aptitude test said I would be better at marketing tangible products like technology. So I now design and help launch iPhone and iPad apps for big and tech savvy companies. My favorite app is MLB at Bat. I can follow the LA Dodgers wherever I am. Over the years, I’ve flown more than a million miles. I've accumulated many memorable experiences traveling around the world and the US, like watching 25 of the 30 major league baseball teams play in their home stadium. But most of all, I always look forward to spending time with my dog, family, friends, and alumni from Carnegie Mellon.
