I have an insatiable curiosity. It is not bound to any specific field of study or pursuit. I live for experiences, for they are all we really have in life. My hobbies are straight forward. I love to keep up on what is happening in the world. To this end, I read extensively. I love to go hiking and camping because nothing makes me feel more connected with the universe than being in nature. I enjoy eating well, thus I enjoy cooking. I am a rabid college basketball fan. I have always been critical and questioning, so I naturally love punk rock and its derivatives. I gravitate towards movies that challenge my mind, though I love a good laugh. I am a bit of a beer snob. Nothing is better than trying a new beer at one of my favorite local watering holes. My goal in life is simple. On my death bed, I wish to have as few regrets as possible. I was dealt a terrible hand. My life has been a struggle. I am now in a position to capitalize on all my hard work.
