I love the outdoors. I love hiking, biking and kayaking. I love hanging out with my family and going to new places with them. I love visiting the national parks. Some of my favorite parks, so far, are Zion National Park and Yellowstone National Park. I also enjoy reading especially books on politics, public policy and public administration. I also enjoy public economics and psychology. Right now, I am reading, "What Were We Thinking: A Brief Intellectual History of the Trump Era" by Carlos Lozada.
