  • I’m happiest doing something I love or doing anything with my favorite people. This ranges from playing lacrosse or doing something outside to a casual hangout with my best friends.
  • Something that’s always on my packing list? I always make sure to bring some sort of day pack for roaming around camp on the weekends.
  • I just finished “If You Can” by William Bernstein, but next on my reading list is “The Millionaire Next Door” by Thomas Stanley. My dad suggested I read them to learn more about investing and how to plan for my future.
  • My oldest pair of shoes is a tie. I had the same pair from 4th grade to 7th grade, and those took me all around town. My other pair has the most miles on them, but they bit the dust on the way to Palau when I got them stuck in an escalator at LAX.
  • Fun Fact: I have been to 43/50 US states.
