You'll often find me staying active outdoors, including anything from football, hiking, biking, or swimming. I also really enjoy spending time with my friends, whether that's playing a friendly game of poker or laughing at terrible horror films. Above all else, I might have a slight addiction to anything Dr. Pepper related. Next year, I intend on furthering my education in college with a focus on a business degree.
