Hobbies and Interests
Running and Fitness
I've been an avid runner for most of my life, competing in track and cross country through middle and high school. Since beginning college, I've continued to run when possible, including participating in the Turkey Trot every year with friends.
Exercising is an excellent way to relax and refocus my attentions. It's something I hope to continue for the rest of my life.
Lake Sports and Boating
I've spent most of my summers on a lake for as long as I can remember. If you can name a lake sport - skiing, wakeboarding, kneeboarding, swimming, tubing - chances are I do it. There's nothing quite as freeing as cutting across smooth water early in the morning and watching the world wake up around you.
Guitar and Music
I've always loved music, but it's only recently that I've begun to play it for myself. I'm no expert at guitar, and don't pretend to be. Even still, it's always rewarding to learn a new piece, and focusing on the music as I play a familiar song is a meditative experience that helps me relax at the end of a stressful day.
My favorite way to pass the time when I don't have any work on my plate is to read. I'm open to any genre, and I love everything from Hofstadter's Eternal Golden Braid to Pierce Brown's Red Rising. If you have any book recommendations, don't hesitate to shoot me an email passing them along - I'd be happy to give them a look!
