Other Loves: Reading! I'm a Stephen King fan. The Shining is probably my favorite book. I'm a big fan of cooking and throwing Walking Dead premier parties. I enjoy playing video games and hiking with my older brother, building houses in the Sims 4, landscape painting, traveling, and discovering new delicious restaurants with my husband, Matthew.
