What are your hobbies?
I absolutely love history, geography, current events, maps, and vexillology (flags). Specifically, I like to spend a lot of my free time reading historical nonfiction or keeping up to date about politics, economics, and finance. I am also a huge basketball fan. I grew up watching the Mavs and Dirk Nowitzki, and though I’m average at best, I love to de-stress by playing basketball whenever I can.

Where are you from?
I was born in Toronto, Canada. However, I spent most of my life in Texas. I lived in Dallas from 2002-2018, grew up there, attended college at SMU, and got my start in research at UT Southwestern.

Fun fact?
I can do the moonwalk.

3 role models?
George Orwell, FDR, and Bernard Fisher

Different career in another life?
Something in history, economics, and/or politics.
