Personal
I love playing nearly all team sports, as well as golfing, fishing, and running. I grew up playing sports such as basketball, cross country and track in high school. Being outside is a source of joy and strength for me, I love sailing and anything involving being out on the water. I enjoy photography and engaging my God-given creativity in that way.
