I have been described by many as a happy nerd. My main hobbies include creative writing and Marvel comics, but I'm also very comfortable out doors. I enjoy hiking, aerobic cross training, and long distance bike riding especially. Throughout middle and high school I also dabbled in the creative arts and was trained as an opera singer, so if your child is doing NYSSMA or SCMEA right now, we will definitely be able to commiserate!
