Impossible is nothing

  • I am not satisfied with the world as it is, so intend to change it. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

About me

I wake up every day with one thought: Is what I'm doing making a positive impact on the world? I keep that in mind and try to incorporate it in everything I do. My true passions are solving problems and helping others. I believe in the power of ideas and that anything can be solved through technology and communication.

People say I'm fun, people person who can talk to anyone :) Flexible and fearless, I'm excited to help build something awesome, share it with the world and bust my ass doing it.

You seem like a lot of fun, we should keep in touch!
