I consider myself an adventurer. I was born and raised in New York, but now living in California after my life in the Marine Corps stationed me here. I’m now out of the Marine Corps, but still working on a base here in California as a civilian. I currently work as a victim advocate for military sexual assault victims. I also work part time as a gymnastics instructor. I keep pretty busy but I do miss NY and eventually I will find my way back to there. I’m continuously exploring, creating and trying to spread joy. I’ve learned that life is a journey full of scattered storms and times of great shine; the lesson is finding the beauty in all of it.
