Some of my personal interests:
My wife and I have recently expanded our family. This has led to some shifting of priorities as we navigate this great, new adventure.
I find technology and the potential application of various technological advances fascinating. This interest stretches from the highest of high tech to the inner workings of items that have existed for decades.
Reading and Writing
My love of technology married with my love of reading and writing caused me to pursue a career in technical writing. I tend to discover a new author, devour their work and then seek out new authors.
In 2003 I started a quest to lose weight. By that time I tipped the scales at 404 lbs. Over the following five years I managed to lose 220 lbs and I have maintained a healthy weight ever since. I continue to watch what I eat and I enjoy physical activity.
My list of places I would like to visit is longer than it seems I could ever hope to fit in one lifetime. It spans the globe, covering just about every continent. Topping the list is Machu Picchu. I hope to hike to the beautiful ancient city in the clouds.
Hiking/Camping/The Great Outdoors
Some of my favorite weekend activites include camping and hiking.
Some of the other things I enjoy in the great outdoors includes stand up paddleboarding (SUPPING), kayaking and walking. I would rather be outside than in a gym.
