Personal

"One of my favorite things about living in Minneapolis is commuting to work on my bike. I especially enjoy riding on the coldest days of the winter – the colder the better! I also recently took up beekeeping as a hobby and managed to place as Runner-Up in the Novice category at the Minnesota State Fair in 2015."
