What are you happiest doing outside of work?
Outside of work, you will find me either playing or watching competitive sports. I am a student of Shotokan Karate, play in two softball leagues, pick-up basketball, and enjoy a good run in the morning. When on the couch, I am a diehard fan of the Toronto Raptors, Toronto Blue Jays, and yes, the Dallas Cowboys!
