Bill O'Connor Profile


Bill O’Connor

Though he calls New York home and works as a project manager there, Bill is a travel enthusiast who traveled more than 100,000 miles last year to destinations ranging from Madrid to Mumbai. He enjoys singing along to Latin pop at parties and in the car, although his friends don’t always share the same passion (you can see him on snapchat at wro6278 si te gusta el pop latino!). Before he moved to his favorite city, he studied Spanish and Economics at Tufts University. Some of his goals over the next few years include opening an ice cream store in Mexico City (his favorite food and second favorite city) and traveling to Brazil to master his português.
