Share how your transplant experience changed your life?

I'm living a life that I don't think I could have ever imagine, even before my renal failure. My transplant has allowed me to get in great shape (still working on my goals), given me the freedom to travel internationally and pursue my career goal as a Behavior Analyst and a real estate investor, which are still pending.

Share whatever information you want us to know about you

I work in mental health as a behavioral clinician (results for certification as a Behavior Analyst is pending) I like to travel internationally (domestically too), go to concerts, plays, movies and try different ethnic foods. Things that I would like to do but haven't done as of yet is to participate in a dinner murder mystery, go on a cruise, rock climbing, visit New York, Martha's vineyard, the Grand Canyon, and take a scenic train ride.

Share your interests and hobbies

I'm a homebody and somewhat of a loner but I do enjoy spending time with close family and friends, spending time on my computer, going to different wineries bootcamp fitness, running, spinning, bike riding and strength training, which is a part of my life.
