I enjoy being active outside, especially in the Spring and Fall. I’m passionate about reading, discussing literature, writing, cooking, fashion, and creating. I recently began playing soccer again for the first time in five years and it’s amazingly fun (and painful). I write poetry and my favorite foods are sushi, quiche, smoked salmon, and cheeseburgers.
