Fun facts

  • I grew up on a farm, and for a few years, had a small farm of my own. I currently live out my former farming life by tending to my herb garden on my balcony and aspiring to have city chickens one day.

Hobbies
  • I try to get in as much Lake Michigan time as possible before it’s eyeball-freezing season again.
