    Apart from being a technology enthusiast, I enjoy being outdoors and spending time with my family. During the warmer months you can find us in the Jeep, top down & doors off, exploring the trails in New England. Or finding a secluded spot to camp. Recently we went on a cross-country road-trip to South Dakota, camping on the roof of our Jeep!

    When forced indoors, I enjoy a good book or have a tea-party with my daughters. I am an aspiring writer, and I spend a large amount of my free time exploring the latest technology advancements, whether its virtual reality or home automation.

    During the COVID-19 pandemic I was able to work from home, and enjoy the extra time with my daughters. Being more involved in their life showed me the benefits of working remote, allowing both a flexible schedule to get the job done and have a work life balance.
