How long you’ve been with the department?

Since June 2019

What’s the coolest thing you’ve ever done?

I was able to go to La Festa Del Redentore in Venice, Italy.  At night, the streets and small boats are decorated, music is playing all over and everyone sits on the canal to watch some of the world’s best fireworks.  They would glisten across the sky and water, definitely the most beautiful sight I have ever seen.

If you could witness any historical event, which one would you want to see and why?

V-E Day would have to be the historical event I would want to see most.  There must have been so many emotions across the world.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I like to spend my spare time with my friends and family, go to concerts and sporting events, traveling, and watch reality TV.

Where would you go on your dream vacation?

There are too many places I would like to go, at the moment my dream vacation would be going to Bora Bora and staying in one of the huts right over the water.

What’s the most important thing you’ve learned in the last five years?

You are in charge of your own happiness, so do what is going to make you happy.
