Location: 25 Court St Apt. C., Ballston Spa, NY

Hosts/Leaders: Judd & Maddie Ziegler

Hi! We are Judd and Maddie Ziegler! We moved upstate within the last year, and so far we are enjoying hiking, exploring what’s good to eat around here, and the frigid cold! Judd is originally from MD and graduated from Princeton with a degree in Chemistry, where he also wrestled. He is passionate about wrestling, his family’s annual Memorial Day wiffle ball game, and beating you in any kind of competition. Maddie is originally from PA and also graduated from Princeton as a Politics major, but please don’t talk to her about politics; she would much rather talk about her cat, Mrs. Biscuits. She loves to read, stay active, and annoy Judd by owning him in foosball.
