Ever since I was young, I have always enjoyed staying active. Whether a solo sport like swimming or running, or playing team sports, I try to make physical activity a part of my life. Growing up I played soccer and basketball and currently enjoy playing basketball at the local gym (pre-covid). I also enjoy bowling and playing poker, any group activity. After finishing my undergraduate studies, I had a six month hiatus. I used this time to get my skydiving license and since then, it has been my form of meditation. I consider myself a family oriented person and enjoy spending time with my family. Them living in San Diego means I can also enjoy another hobby: surfing and being on the beach in general. In the winter, I enjoy going up to the mountains, getting away from civilization for a bit and go snowboarding. Lastly, whenever I have the opportunity to travel, I enjoy visiting new countries, I try to explore local places and avoid tourist traps. I have visited fourteen different countries thus far and look forward to adding to the list.
