I enjoy reading textbooks to learn more about the world. I'm currently working through Damodaran on Valuation and Chemerinsky's Constitutional Law.

Composing Music

I have composed and arranged music since elementary school, with instrumentation ranging from solo piano to full wind ensemble.


I've recently started a scotch collection. My current favorites are the Aberlour 16 and the Ardbeg Auriverdes, and my go-to is the Oban 14.


I've played since I was four years old, and although I took a bit of a hiatus in college, I've gotten back into the swing of things since then.

Country Music

I've enjoyed this genre for as long as I can remember. While a lot of country artists are too pop-sounding for my taste, some of my favorite acts include the Zac Brown Band, Montgomery Gentry, Eric Church, and Turnpike Troubadors.
