My Favorite Quote

The two most important days of your life are the day you are born, and the day you figure out why.

Life Outside of UD

I am an avid theater goer- having seen over 60 shows on Broadway! I love to travel and have visited Italy, France, Ireland, England, Switzerland and Germany thus far, hopefully more to come! I love to read, listen to podcasts, indulge in both really terrible reality TV and 90s dramas, and have a guilty pleasure of watching YouTubers.
