for last 18 years.
I am a bonafide fitness enthusiast. I have been told I look younger

the DMV office. Okay I am pushing it with the DMV thing, but you
know what I mean. Speaking of enjoyable moments, I like comedy,
movies, yapping over slow drawn sips of coffee/tea, hiking,
charity, dancing, walking, wine tasting, eating (Anthony Bourdain
I have sky dived solo several times. I have now steered into
different areas of interest. But I can always appreciate a sense of
exploration and a tendency to learn and have fun.
