I grew up in northern New Jersey. On summer vacation we would head down to the Jersey Shore to enjoy the warm weather and the occasional waves. One winter, my family decided to take a vacation to Costa Rica and I absolutely fell in love with it! After our first trip to Costa Rica, I dreamed of one day being able to live in this beautiful tropical paradise to enjoy the warm water, great fishing, and consistent surf.
After graduating from Boston College, I decided to join a volunteer program to teach English in the public elementary school system here in Costa Rica. I was very lucky to be placed in such an amazing town on the Pacific, Mal Pais.
After my year of teaching I decided that I did not want to leave Costa Rica. I worked hard to figure out a way to make my dream of living in paradise come true. Running a small business here in Costa Rica has made my dreams come true. Hopefully one day you will come down and visit to experience our little piece of heaven.
