Family: Most of my family is still in Houston, and my sister is here in Austin (about 10 minutes from me, which is great!). I also have family on the East and West Coasts, and around the world.

Outside of work, I love... playing and running tabletop roleplaying games, hanging out with my dog Baxter and any other animal I can pet, and making art.

Assessments: Guardian (Predictive Index); INFJ (Myers Briggs); Empathy, Intellection, Connectedness (Strengths Finder)

Favorite SAM core value: Stay curious. I am always looking to learn from others.
