An awesome place I've visited:
Budapest. I spent the semester studying abroad when I was in college and Budapest was far and away the most beautiful city that I visited while in Europe. The tourist industry over there was still in the process of developing so you had to discover the city for yourself rather than listening to a guided tour or sitting on top of a double-decker bus.

My life history in 5 sentences or fewer:
Born and raised on Long Island, I developed a wonderful love for the ocean, with every summer of my life spent at the beach, whether lifeguarding, surfing, jetskiing or just lying in the sand. I was blessed with fantastic parents and am very close to my entire, loud and Italian family. I spent a semester abroad living in London and traveling through Europe, which is an experience that taught me more than I originally thought it would. After graduating from college in upstate New York, I moved to NYC where I started off in the publishing industry and later moved into finance.

Cursing...call me old-fashioned, but a sailor's mouth doesn't impress me.
