5 Things About Me: Henry Dwyer

  1. I used to be really into Marine Biology and I loved Sea turtles. I once saved 60 baby sea turtles who were getting attacked by fire ants in their nest.
  2. I love to cook, especially Italian and Asian meals.
  3. I currently work at a brewery in Athens (Creature Comforts) and I’m studying to become a level one sommelier.
  4. I have a Bernese Mountain dog named Guinness, the name was influenced by a recent trip to Ireland.
  5. When I was 14 I was on a baseball team where I was nicknamed “The Magnet” because I was the only lefty in the league and would get hit by pitches all the time.
