Interests

Apart from being a graduate student, I enjoy venturing out to local venues and restaurants. When traveling, I like trying the food locals boast about. My travels are often between Washington D.C. and California.

Most of my free time is spent watching stand up on Netflix and going to comedy shows. I find relief in comedy and I find that laughter is truly the best medicine.
