What I'm Passionate About
I'm intrigued by design, travel, photography, sustainability, technology, writing, and even better conversations.
I am an avid explorer of nature. Growing up, my family instilled in me a lifelong love of the outdoors, which I express in many forms such as skiing, hiking, and running whenever time allows. During the weekend you can often find me walking my dog, reading and writing in coffee shops, or searching for the next big thing.
