Fun facts: I am passionate about cooking and I love trying new recipes. I enjoy reading nonfiction (Malcom Gladwell) and satirical fiction (Aldous Huxley), as well as almost any other book put in front of me. Half of what I know I learned from podcasts.  I use sunscreen of the highest SPF available. I hope to own goats one day. I am an INFJ. I love kayaking and hiking. And I am a whiz at thrift shopping.
