I chose this photo because it is taken at my favorite time of the year, which is the beginning of fall. It is the time of year when I spend most of my time outside with family and friends, and most of all, my dog. We spend a lot of time at dog parks, walking around Saratoga, and even strolling the smaller parks in Johnstown in our free time. It’s a great time to get out of the house, enjoy the weather, and do some socializing (Bella makes more friends than I do but I think it is because she is just so darn cute!)
Fun fact: Growing up, I was pretty jealous that my grandmother, who was an artist, had such great talent and all I could draw were stick figures. Fast forward to the present, I find myself partaking in craft projects on the weekends and in my free time as much as possible as the outcome of the project is awesome and the process itself is calming and enjoyable. I guess I did get the artistic gene after all!

I love to travel and spent 6 weeks in Australia last year! In this photo I’m holding a koala named Vinnie at the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary in Brisbane.

This is a photo of me at the land that I recently bought. One of my dreams is to one day build a house there but as you can tell, there is still some work to do before I get to that point.

The photo I picked is of when I hiked Overlook Mountain in the Catskills. I enjoy the outdoors, hiking and taking in the beautiful views which make the climb worthwhile.
Fun fact: I ride a Harley Davidson motorcycle, his name is Herb Dyna.
