I played tennis in college and still play pretty often. I also love playing soccer, squash, snowboarding, kayaking and trying new sports. While I was in San Diego, I picked up wakeboarding and would like to try to find a place to wakeboard in the DC area. I recently tried whitewater rafting and have already been twice this summer (once in DC and once in Australia) and would love to go more.
I also enjoy listening to music (mostly alternative and rock) and used to play the drums. I like to go to music concerts and sporting events, although I haven't done either nearly as much as I would have liked to.
Traveling is also a hobby of mine. My work has provided an opportunity for me to visit some really interesting places for projects and conferences and I have been fortunate enough to be able to tack on vacation days to most of my work travel. Outside of the US, I've been to Ecuador, the Galapagos Islands, England, France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Mexico, Canada, Austria, Brazil, China, Vietnam, Thailand, Iceland and Australia. I've wanted to go to East Africa for a really long time and am hoping to go sometime in the near future.
