Study Abroad Program:
I actually never studied abroad, and I regret it, but I’m out here now anyways!

What made you decide to come out to work for FlorenceForFun?
“Well I first visited John [Zewinski] last fall- we were friends in high school- and I visited five countries while here.  Easily the best vacation I’ve ever had.
At the time 
I had just moved to Florida, which had been my dream my whole life.  After working at a cubicle day in, day out, it wears on you.  I needed more adventure and fun in life.  So I subleased my room in Tampa, and came here.
I gave up a lot in Florida, but I gained a lot more.

His advice to Study Abroaders?

You never know if you’re gonna come back [to Europe] to not.  Don’t go back to America with regrets about things you didn’t do.  Do everything you can now. Reach out to people.
