  1. I was born in New Jersey, Exit 8 off the turnpike and I am darn proud to be a Yankee (you will understand if you have spent any time living in the South).
  2. I have a BS in Marine Science and a MS in Fisheries and Aquaculture. I currently work in finance.
  3. I spent a month in Russia when I was in college. The majority of the trip was spent in Siberia and I would love to go back.
  4. I use to dye my hair purple and pink in high school, wish I still could.
  5. I have only done one keg stand in my life and it was only 3 years ago at a Superbowl party.
  6. I have 2 nephews and both are named Alexander, one goes by Alex and the other is Lex.
  7. I am a right-handed, but I play guitar left-handed.

great facts. love that your first and only keg stand was three years ago. How did you get into the finance industry? sounds like you need to do something with the bay!

I worked for the state for a year, but as usual the budget was cut and I was laid off. Normally, I would then just find another job and move on, but at that point I had bought a house and gotten engaged, so moving wasn't so easy. A friend of a friend knew someone who was hiring in the finance world and got was hired. I have to admit financial jobs have better hours and better pay.

Fact #8 - I contemplated a PhD in agriculture economics. Just could not face another 3-5 years of school.
