Since this is the Dreamer issue…

What is your dream job? 

My dream job would combine two of my passions: tech and helping people. I would probably want to work in a venture capital/tech fund incubator, or something of that nature. It’s amazing to see things go from just an idea to a fully formed company. I would love to help people realize their dreams and bring their ideas into reality. Most importantly, I would want the tech I work in to have an impact on people’s lives.

What qualities do you look for in your dream girl?

Ashton Kutcher was right in his speech at the Teen Choice Awards—smart is sexy. What’s even sexier is passion and drive—a girl who knows what she wants and works hard to make her dreams come to fruition. Along with that, my dream girl would love to have fun and be spontaneous and adventurous. Finally, I need a girl who makes me want to be a better person for her.

Do you have a recurring dream?

Not really… my dreams really depend on what happens during the day or what I want to happen in the future.
