After living in the Midwest my whole life, I moved to Florida more or less on a whim last year, and I've been really enjoying experiencing all that this state has to offer, and all the cool people I've met.

Some things that are at the top of my priority list are my friends, family, and to be constantly learning. I think it's important to be open to new experiences and adventures, to always keep improving, and to enjoy the little things in life. After all, it's all those little things that make up the big picture, don't you think?
