I love being physically active and I love to read. I enjoy most sports - but prefer to play them or at least be at the game. I play tennis and aspire to being a better golfer. I love being outside - in almost any weather - especially where it's quiet and there is water or mountains. Some of my best moments have been spent rafting beautiful rivers and hitting white water. I like music, especially opera and rock and roll, bluegrass and classical. I love to run. I'm interested in politics and history and government and foreign countries. I'm also interested in helping people have better lives. I want to learn to speak more languages. I like to share great experiences with people who enjoy them as much as I do. Sometimes I like to be quiet and share that, too. The most important people in my life are the people in my family.
