Outside of tech, I...

... spend time with my three dogs and three cats! Thumper, my largest dog, is a Golden Retriever mix who adores people. Ikaros, my oldest dog, is an Alaskan Klee Kai and looks like a tiny husky! Sable is my youngest and smallest, a silly, fluffy Pomeranian. My cats are all from the same litter and are named Nero, Astera, and Caira.

... play video and board games! Some of my favorites video games are Ark, World of Warcraft, and clicker style games. As for board games, I love Monopoly, Pandemic, and Pitch Deck. I have been slowing growing my collection of games and am always looking for new people to play with.

... work on puzzles! I enjoy doing jigsaw puzzles, solving sudoku and word searches, and all kinds of puzzle games. I love being challenged and seeing how the pieces come together.

... explore stories! Did you know that we are all story tellers? From just recalling an incident that happened last week to telling an elaborate tale that is on par with the Odyssey, we all tell stories. Stories are such a critical part of our lives and I love exploring the psychology behind why we are so engaged in these narratives.
