Interests

When I'm not working, I enjoy being active. That often includes spending time at the gym, playing basketball, fishing, swimming, or just chasing around my two young girls. I love being outdoors and traveling.

On a rainy day, I enjoy binge-watching a good TV series like Breaking Bad or Stranger Things. I enjoy keeping up with technology including reading articles, developing small projects, and home automation.
