In my spare time I enjoy everything that involves being active outdoors including kayaking, fishing, traveling, hiking, biking and just about anything else you can name. I also enjoy cooking, reading, and brewing homemade beer. I am always open to and searching for new hobbies to add to my long list of existing ones. A business major with an entrepreneurial spirit, I also enjoy working with and building small organizations like ACK. The team is great and I really enjoy working with the staff at ACK!
