I enjoy having the company of friends and family. I enjoy having discussions with intelligent, caring people, where we figure out how to solve the world's problems. I like seeing new things, and seeing old things again. I like long walks, short walks, riding my bike, driving my car. I like to build things and fix things. I am somewhat of an idealist, but realize the need to be practical. On the work side, I am an engineer. A few years ago, I finished a 20 year stint working for Dulles Airport. I am now working for a small consulting firm, and am planning to retire soon.
