I’m interested in history. I also love the outdoors and I’m into physical fitness and athletics, both participating and watching. I bike, surf, and do long-distance runs and triathalons. An Iron Man is on my list. 

What’s a favorite place of yours in Boston?

All the historical places in and around Boston, like the North Bridge of Concord, where “The shot heard round the world” started our fight for independence. I also enjoy running the Freedom Trail.
