Interests

Apart from being a digital marketer, I enjoy most of my time being outdoors. During the warm months here in New York City, I enjoy biking in Prospect Park, hiking in Harriman State Park, and searching for sea glass at Ft. Tilden. In the winter, I am an avid snowboarder and love watching my dog frolic in the snow.

When forced to be indoorsy, I follow sports; specifically the Brooklyn Nets and Virginia Tech basketaball teams. I also love to cook and tinker with my 15+ cameras I've acquired over the years.
