Where have you traveled and where would you still like to go?
Domestically I have been to New York-Syracuse-Albany-Frankfort NY, Chicago IL, Minneapolis MN, Grantsburg WI, Dallas TX, Orlando FL. Internationally, I have traveled to Mexico several times, Amsterdam, and Barcelona. I would love to travel internationally more and visit Germany, Spain (again), Ireland, Italy, Norway, Sweden, Japan, Thailand, Singapore and more!
What is the one thing people would be surprised to know about you?
One thing people are surprised to know about me is that I hold a private pilot license (single-engine land). Growing up we traveled by airplane yearly to Mexico to visit my grandparents and I fell in love with flying and airplanes. So, I became a pilot. I was on a path to become a commercial airline pilot but a mild concussion from a car accident derailed that dream. However, I hope to become a flight instructor one day and do that part-time.
What are you passionate about?
Growing as a person and in my career, friends and family, exotic plants, aviation and cars.
What’s the most non-traditional job you’ve ever had?
When I was 18 I helped set up big-top tents for a circus. I only lasted one week doing that.
