Employer and Job Title: Chemist, Connecticut Department of Public Health

What he loves about Hartford and this region: I love the nature and parks that Connecticut and the Hartford area have to offer. There are fun places to walk and hike all over the state. I also like that the coastline is beautiful and easily accessible from Hartford. 

His favorite thing about HYPE: My favorite things about HYPE are the events to meet others in the area, especially as an individual who moved here from out of state. HYPE has been a great way to meet new people.

His hobbies and interests outside of work: My favorite hobbies include gardening, cooking/baking, photography, hiking/walking, working on cars, and roasting coffee. 

What books he is currently reading: I am currently reading two books. I am reading The Lord Of The Rings The Two Towers as something light and fun. I am also reading Ordinary Men, which is a much darker and thought-provoking book about some of the events during World War II.
