I am passionate about maintaining an active lifestyle. I’ve been running and playing tennis since high school. In the last 5 years, I’ve picked up weight lifting and bouldering as part of my regular fitness routine. You can usually find me hitting the weights or rock walls at the gym, or trying out a new sport.
