Your favorite pastime

I explore as much as I can, whether that be hiking through a forest or walking through a part of the city I have never been to. I enjoy finding opportunities to experience something that I never have before.

Your favorite saying

“Confidence does not come from knowing you are right - it comes from being okay with failing.” - Mike Monteiro

Time waits for no one. What do you want to do before the final curtain?

I want to take a backpacking trip across one of the continents, most likely Europe. No itinerary or deadlines. No destination planned. Just wanderlust.

Ever have a personal experience with a celebrity?

My connections to celebrities have always been within a couple of degrees of separation. I have seen numerous musicians live, but never had a personal encounter with one.
