FOR FUN: Besides teaching and completing my degree, my husband and I do a lot in the community. We help organize and run events within the startup community as well as fundraisers including Social Media Day Tampa. We also write a blog called the Never Have I Ever Guys (or @NHIEGuys for short). We love traveling and exploring all of the fun things to do wherever we go! We are big foodies, so we also love tasting the new spots around town and we go to lots of concerts and festivals.
FAVORITES: Some of my favorite things include a night of Netflix and Rosé, play time with our little Yorkie, Dex, and enjoying the outdoors.
PET PEEVES: Loud chewing and people who scuff their feet as they walk
FUN FACT: Before you ask, YES, I am related to the Tampa lawyers!
DIRTY SECRET: I love reality TV and would secretly love to be on Survivor or Amazing Race!
WHY I JOINED PRIDE & PASSION: Pride and Passion is the perfect mix of two very important things in my life: education and the LGBT community.
WHY EVERYONE SHOULD COME TO PRIDE & PASSION 2018: Pride and Passion is a unique event here in Tampa Bay. It is one that invites guests to be creative, but more importantly, to be themselves. It’s a great way to raise money for the museum’s education programs while meeting others who enjoy supporting the community. If you haven’t yet attended, what are you waiting for?
