Personal Highlights

When not working you can usually find me hanging out with friends, playing games, and having fun. I love spending time with my little sister, showing her how to be better than me every day! Truly my favorite thing to do is cooking large amounts of food for all my friends and family and getting to see how happy it makes everyone!
