I like to try new things. I enjoy collecting art, snowboarding, and rock climbing, but I’m always looking for something new to dive into. When I find something that catches my interest, I like to go all in. I think stand up paddleboarding is my new thing.

I keep photos and films of the things I’ve done and the good times I’ve had since I tend to forget easily. When I look back, they help me remember all the small details of the experiences that have slipped my mind. It’s a pretty exciting time in life when people you know are getting married left and right. There’s so much going on that it’s easy to get swept up in the moment, but it’s all great to look back on. Unfortunately, since I’m the one usually behind the camera, there aren’t too many photos with me in them. I’ve been told that I tend to hoard my photos to myself, but that’s something I’ve been working on.

While adding to my personal story, I’m also a prodigious consumer of stories. I read as many interesting books as I can get my hands on, my favorite genre of video games are role-playing games, and I enjoy a film with a happy ending. If I’m going to invest 2 hours into something, I’d rather see good things happen to people. I’m a big fan of sci-fi and fantasy because I like to imagine things as they might be in the future and what ifs. I think that in those situations, there’s a better opportunity to explore how people might behave in extraordinary circumstances.

On the subject of food, I love all things sweet. Pastries, candy, and fruits, I can’t get enough of them. All other foods are good too. There are few foods I won’t like.
