My first passion would have to be travel. (I trekked to Everest Base Camp in March!) I think it stems from being a Navy brat and moving every three years as a kid. I've been to 20+ countries and there's still so many more to see! I'm interested in all sorts of travel: I like museums, nice restaurants, and theater as well as hiking, surfing and wildlife. One kind of vacation I don't like, sorry, is just going to a beach and sitting around. What was one of your favorite vacations and what are some places you'd like to see next?
I'm an on and off runner. I've done three half marathons. It'd be great to go on runs and races with someone else. Are you a runner at all? What do you think the biggest challenge of running is?
I've been brewing beer with my dad for the past two years. It's been a lot of fun and a great way to spend time with my old man. And we actually make some pretty decent beers. It's made me appreciate beer a lot more.
I love ketchup, horseradish and yogurt. Not all together, though - that would be gross.
I'm allergic to peanuts, hearing impaired and I don't care for chocolate. I have a feeling that most people would say the last thing is the biggest thing wrong with me.
I'm also a pretty huge news junkie. I love knowing what's going on in the world. But what I really like are all the small, bizarre stories that you see in the news.
