I'm an avid runner, ran the 2016 Providence marathon. I play Tuba - saving up to buy a really nice rotary-valve C Tuba. When I'm not running or doing the grad school thing, I'm usually either playing board & card games with friends or hacking on my raspberry pi and various other devices. I like to think I'm into photography, but really I just take pictures with my phone and occasionally post to Instagram.
