I am a person that likes to enjoy life. I try not to take myself too seriously (that's just boring :-)) and don’t let my work be the focus of my life. I work for the Fed Gov't now and I am a student again... getting my MPA with a concentration in National Security. I have a close (somewhat large) extended family with cousins who I consider like brothers. I have a dog that I spoil terribly but hey…why not! My friends would consider me a loyal, perceptive and a supportive person. I like to laugh and have fun, go out for drinks with friends but also like to stay home and watch TV. I am an honest person but will only give my opinion if you want it. I enjoy listening to music (I’m a country music fan but don’t hold it against me), going to concerts, watching sports (football and baseball mostly), being outside (when it’s warm out), skiing (wish I could snowboard…tried it but it did not work out so well :-) ), sitting on the beach or at the pool and vacations abroad (I’m always trying to find new places to go).
