Music: I’m into most genres: rock, pop, jazz, country, classical,
r&b, some hip hop. My favorite artists include: Billy Joel;
Hall & Oates; Chicago.
Movies: I primarily am interested in classic cinema, but keep an
eye out for current movies. I’m into most genres, except horror. My
all-time favorite films include: Citizen Kane; Casablanca; Duck
Soup. I have an extensive DVD collection.
Books: My primary reading interest is in history and other
non-fiction, although I have read a bit of fiction now and then. My
all-time favorite books include: The Guns of August (Barbara W.
Tuchman); Guns, Germs, and Steel (Jared Diamond); Stalingrad: The
Fateful Siege 1942-1943 (Antony Beavor).

reruns) include: Seinfeld; 60 Minutes; Law & Order.
Games: I have been known to enjoy an occasional game of Monopoly,
The Game of Life, Uno, and Battleship.
Sports: Soccer (the beautiful game) is my sporting passion. I was a
late comer to it, playing a bit of pick up and intramural games,
but have been interested in the sport and its lore ever since. I
referee youth and amateur soccer games, and futsal (5-a-side indoor
soccer). I also follow baseball, hockey, basketball, and the
Olympics. Earlier in my life, I covered sports for a newspaper,
publicized intercollegiate athletics, and helped keep statistics at
sporting events. I did run a little cross country in high school,
and played a bit of baseball in my youth. I try to do some road
running (mostly to keep in shape for soccer refereeing).
Food: Into Italian, Chinese, and Mexican cuisine. Willing to try
