Thanksgiving is always a good opportunity to take a few moments and reflect. The last few years in particular have been very good to me. I am incredibly grateful for all of the amazing experiences I had and all of the wonderful people I met while living in California.

This past year, my good fortune continued. I was able to embark on two amazing adventures, both of which were trips of a lifetime. Now, a mere two months after arriving back on the east coast, my girlfriend and I have a new apartment in NYC and we are both exploring new career opportunities.

Most importantly, I am surrounded by people I love. Without all of you, I would not have anyone to share my adventures and good fortune with, so thank you for being a part of my life.
