I was reared in Norcross, Georgia, an incredibly diverse suburb north of Atlanta. I have since lived in Florida, Los Angeles, Boston, and Providence, and I have spent several summers stints in Maryland and New York. I love to travel and try new things.

My hobbies include playing baseball, hiking/backpacking, painting (acrylics and oils), billiards, sewing (making backpacks and tents), running, photography, and cooking.
