When you’re not working you’re…?
When I’m not working, I enjoy producing music on my computer. I am a big music lover and always seek to discover new artists and make unique tracks of my own. Outside of music, I am a huge NY Giants/NY Mets fan. I also play in a recreational baseball league.
What’s the best career advice you ever got?
Take things at your own pace. Some people know what they want to do when they’re 12 years old, and some are still figuring out their career path well after their careers have already begun. Trying to compare your career to someone else’s is a waste of time, and nobody ever has it all figured out. I try to focus on making an impact each day and seeing where life takes me.
What’s a destination in the world that you aspire to visit?
At the beginning of 2020, I studied abroad in Madrid for two months. We took some amazing trips to neighboring European countries, but unfortunately our abroad semester was cut short in early March due to COVID. That weekend, we were supposed to take a trip to Dubrovnik, Croatia, and I’m still upset we weren’t able to go. I hope to make it back to Europe for an extended period at some point and visit all of the countries we didn’t get to see.
What’s the one thing people say you’re best at?
Planning and recordkeeping. I use Excel spreadsheets to track anything and everything. I always like to be the one organizing events, and my friends happily let me take the reins when it comes to planning a weekend trip, setting up a fantasy football league, or searching for a new apartment.
