Interests

Apart from being a small business owner, consultant, and bookstore manager, I like to be outdoors soaking up the sun either hiking, walking, or being on the water. In the winter, I take my exercise indoors.

I love to read nonfiction books, to cook, to medidate, and to improve my yoga practice. I spend a large amount of my free time exploring the latest technology advancements and the cybersecurity sphere.
