Research and Interests:

I enjoy learning and experiencing new things. I believe once we stop learning, we fade away. As much as I have learned over the years, has taught me there is so much more to learn. I find politics to be interesting, but frustrating. I also enjoy meeting new people and networking. Life is so much richer when it is shared with others.
