I love sports, fitness, and outdoor activities. You'll often find me working out, running, or playing on softball and volleyball teams. If you're into sports, I'm a Cubs, Bears, Blackhawks, Bulls, and Illini fan. Always up for a friendly rivalry though!
In general, I like to keep active... I crave new adventures, challenges, traveling, constantly learning, and trying new things.
• Working with computers and electronic gadgets
