What is unique that's not in your bio?
I love sneakers. I started seriously collecting them back in 2005. It all stemmed from my childhood-- particularly from playing a lot of basketball. Today, I can finally obtain all those shoes I could never get my hands on as a kid. It's an obsession, for sure.
What's your favorite accomplishment?
I think it was last year, when I ran a 10K! Next up, 20K!
