Life is not a spectator sport.
I'm from a place where only the locals call it "the Lou" otherwise known as Saint Louis. There's so many ways to love "the Lou" besides watching the Cardinals. After studying and graduating at a University in Ohio, lived and worked in several locations specializing in marketing & sales. Furthered my education with achieving an International MBA while studying in Europe and Asia. Recently finished an overseas China assignment in sourcing, quality control & supply chain management. Now, currently working on various projects and managing my own startup ecommerce business while studying technology, network admin related courses. Looking to launch a high value company in the near future while innovating something that changes the world for the better.
Besides a demanding professional workload, still continue to participate in many sports such as surfing & kitesurfing, skydiving, running, triathlon and adventure races as well as playing Aussie or Gaelic football.
Also have much interest in Live Music, Films, Tech & Tasty Food.
