Any hobbies people are surprised to hear you have?
People are usually surprised to hear that I love to volunteer for habitat for humanity, building homes. I enjoy the physical aspect as well as knowing that I am giving back to the community. Some of my hobbies that aren’t all that surprising are binge watching new shows on Netflix or reading a good book.

My favorite place to visit is Barcelona. I love the culture, the food, the architecture, and the nightlife.
Most interesting company you have worked with?
North Mill Capital is definitely the most interesting place I’ve ever worked. It’s a small enough company that I am able to interact with different people who are in all levels of the business.
