Bio: Currently my hobbies are geared towards home improvements projects as we bought our first home. My goal is to get to play with all the “toys/tools” that my father didn’t let me use when I was a child and his assistance fixing my childhood house. In addition, I plan to continue experimenting with home brewing recipes, especially stouts as I get to experience a fall and winter in St. Louis.
