Going out with friends. ..I’m always going out. I like playing guitar and going fishing.

I swim once or twice a week at least and drink an excess amount of water. 

What are you looking forward to?

Once graduation is all said and done, I am looking forward to landing a starting position in my field and just experience new things. 

Fun Fact:

I’m color blind.  I only see in red scale.

I still want to work in metro-Detroit and be a contributor to the comeback of the once great cities like Pontiac and Detroit.
