MORE

There is so much that can be done and learned in a day. I think it is important to occupy your time with lots of individual pursuits, personal goals, and ways to always self-improve. When I have a moment to myself, I mostly do a lot reading, studying, songwriting, painting, yoga, biking, weightlifting, programming, investing, traveling, and cooking. Most importantly, I truly believe that life is most beautiful and prosperous when surrounded by caring and supporting friends and family.
