As an advocate for the people I work with at Systems Unlimited, I've become increasingly more politically active and have worked opposition to the governor's plan to privatize medicaid.
In my free time I volunteer as a youth soccer coach for Iowa City Kickers. Its been a truly wonderful experience. I'd always heard kids were sponges and watching how quickly the absorb knowledge continues to surprise me. I've really become interested in yoga lately. I find it extremely relaxing. I love the sound of plastic cracking against trees on a warm summers evening. The only thing better is the jangle of the chains just before the disc drops into the basket or the way the disc dances in the breeze just before it turns on its side and plummets to the ground. I’m willing to play disc golf anytime. My favorite course is peninsula or Ace Run as I believe “they” are calling it now. Music is a passion of mine.
I’m a collector of books and vinyl albums. Second hand stores are wonderful sifting through hundreds of albums just to stumble across The Kinks Greatest Hits or Allman Brothers at Fillmore East. As for my book collection it grows faster than I can read them and I’m constantly running out of space on my bookshelves. None of this has hindered my compulsion to compile books in an effort to rival the nearest library.

A blending of cross country skiing and disc golf, similar to the Biathlon. Yet instead of skiing and shooting the athletes would ski and play a round of disc golf. I know genius right.
