In my free time I love to play and watch soccer, read (I have a weakness for a good mystery novel), hike and spend time in nature, take photographs and make other art (printmaking and abstract art), and volunteer at various organizations to help those in need. I am an avid gardener and love to learn about urban agriculture both at on a small and large scale. Fun fact: I have recently begun training for a 10K, although still not quite sure when that will actually happen.
