Where's your favorite place in the world?
Currently, Thailand. It is the most beautiful country that I have ever been to. The food, the culture, and the people are all unbelievably amazing. It’s easy to think you are living in a dream when visiting.
What's the last book you read?
The 5 Love Languages. It really opened my eyes to how you can improve you relationships with not just your significant other, but also with friends and family. Truly understanding what makes people tick has helped me strengthen many relationships in my life.
What's the coolest thing you're working on right now?
A beer recipe. I love to homebrew beer and I am constantly trying to perfect my recipes. Currently, I am working on making a chocolate stout with vanilla, cinnamon, and habanero that I think is going to be amazing!
What is your favorite family tradition?
Every year at Christmas a bunch of my family and I stay in our family cabin on top of a hill in Southern Tier, New York. It’s a great way to unplug from the world while also being able to reconnect with each other after being a part for a long time.
