I love children, animals, classic black and white movies, and a really great thin-crust pizza! I have a very active and balanced lifestyle of work, play, public service and intellectual pursuits. I very much enjoy hiking, camping, bike rides, and long walks. I don't sit around the couch watching sports much but I do love the J-Hawks BB, and keeping up with the baseball season. Flying is a cherished advocation. Really like crafting water fountains and woodworking projects. Love live music, especially rock, pop, celtic, and jazz .... I can spend hours touring museums, antique shops, and bookstores.... haven't done much dancing lately but would enjoy picking that up again with the right person.
