What do you do for fun? 

I play guitar and sing to relieve stress and relax.

I grew up in Boerne, Texas just outside of San Antonio.

My music taste fluctuates based on mood but I listen to everything from rock, alternative, hip-hop, EDM, singer-songwriter, indie, and future bass. My current favorite artist is a band called Trash Panda (kind of an alternative acid rock).

I’d love to travel to Machu Picchu, Peru.
