In my spare time, you'll find me playing with Ash (my golden retriever), organizing my brain on paper, drawing, playing video games, exploring nature, dancing salsa, climbing, playing soccer,  cycling, or my favorite; people watching. (I'm inspired by humans.)

My favorite movie character is Lieutenant Dan.
