"Great minds have purposes, little minds have wishes."
Motto by Washington Irving.
I am California born and Bay Area bred. I attended university in Boston and work in NYC today. I graduated with a degree in mechanical engineering, worked briefly in the aerospace industry, and am currently employed in the commercial real estate industry. I am an avid athlete (as much as possible around work these days) and love nothing more than the great outdoors. I am a firm believer in the merits of education and the positive effects of effective coaching and mentoring.
A few more quotes for good measure...

"Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard. Live in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft. Travel." - the entire article containing this quote, by Mary Schmich, is worth reading: http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/columnists/chi-schmich-sunscreen-column,0,4054576.column
