Although I enjoy a wide range of interests including theater,
movies, photography, travel, golf, tennis, biking, sports (both a
Wolves and UofM Football season ticket holder), I probably enjoy
stimulating conversation even more.
I have just about everything on my iPod from the Dixie Chicks, Al

Jennings, Tupac and Beth Orton. I will make time for The News Room,
True Blood, Archer, Bill Mahr and John Stewart and enjoy a good
meal with a nice bottle of wine.
