I grew up in Denver, Colorado and I’m a big fan of Colorado sports teams. I also enjoy several unconventional hobbies — like Ultimate Frisbee, astronomy, and strategy board games.

I am also committed to community service. On average, I have spent over 100 hours per year doing volunteer work in personal finance, education, wildlife care, and supporting the environment.
