I love to travel, and I've been lucky enough to have both traveled to and lived in a bunch of places including other cities within the US, Europe, South America and Africa. Inside the US, I want to visit all 50 states (have hit 34 so far!) and see a baseball game at all 30 major league ballparks (have hit 22 so far!).
I have a strong passion for food and cooking. In addition to going out and trying new restaurants, I'm old-school in the kitchen and make whatever I can from scratch -- anyone can buy a pre-made pie crust or frozen pizza dough from the store, but I know that I can do better! And I have done better! I especially love baking and make my own bread, pizza crusts, pie crusts and pastries from scratch.
I am always focused on improving myself and growing as a person, whether it's fitness-related, work-related, or hobbies/skills/other passions.
