Fun Fact

I played lacrosse at Cornell and in junior year we were undefeated and ranked #1 in the country up until losing to Duke by 1 goal in the semifinals. The game was played in front of 46,000 fans at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.


Newest hobby is bass fishing (# of bass = 0 and counting), working out (boxing, biking, running, etc.), making the best homemade pizzas, baking delicious apple pies, personal development through books/podcasts/youtube videos and spending time with my beautiful fiancé Morgan.
