Though not my profession, I work with a local high school marching band / color guard, and it's by far the best thing ever. Being able to work with a group of kids with a passion for music is a damn good time. Sadly, good times don't pay the bills. Having studied accounting at UConn, I've now escaped the world of public accounting and moved to internal audit. I find business to be pretty damn fascinating, so a job that involves absorbing everything there is to know about a business within a matter of a few weeks provides that great balance of fun and challenge. When not working with the band or at work, I love to spend my time simply relaxing with friends, biking, trying new beers, and going to local ska shows. Seeing bands like the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Reel Big Fish, and Streetlight Manifesto are always a blast.
I also hold a great love for my alma mater and try to visit the school every chance I get. Watching the UConn Women's Basketball team dismantle whatever competition the rest of the country can muster up is far more entertaining than most men's ball, college or pro, in my opinion. And, while not maintaining a vice-like grip on their respective sports like the Lady Huskies, I do love our men's bball and football teams, even if they give me heart palpitations with every narrow win or crushing upset.
