Originally from San Antonio, Texas, I played basketball and was a member of the Kappa Alpha Order at Roanoke College in Salem, Virginia where I visited South America on several extended trips and developed a passion for all things Latin American. Since graduating, I’ve been based out of Denver, Colorado and am now looking forward to the next chapter of my life as a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Dominican Republic. I leave on March 5, 2014, and after I finish my service in May of 2016 I plan on attending a (reasonably priced) graduate school or pursuing a career with the government with a focus on international affairs. When my travel bug stops itching, I would like to end up in either Washington, DC, or Denver, Colorado.
Looking forward to connecting with you, for those interested you may follow me on Twitter @toomey_connor or on Instagram at cjtoomey1.
