My self-summary
I'm a voracious reader, a lover of jazz, funk and old school rock. I also have an abiding appreciation of the arts. I believe that it is impossible to have too many books or too much music.

I guess I can also be classified as a gym rat. I've been working out (mostly weight training) three times a week since 1980. I'm in pretty good shape for a proto-geezer.

And I like the usual outdoorsy stuff - fishing, hiking, etc., but I have reached the stage in life where I believe that room service is infinitely more preferable when compared to rustling up some freeze dried stew over a camp stove.
What I’m doing with my life
Over the years, I have taught at three different universities, ran my own business and worked in the corporate world as well. I currently evaluate and design training systems for the local aerospace company.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
The past cannot be undone and the future is unknown so I'm working on being in the moment. To paraphrase Kurt Vonnegut "Just be happy that you're part of the dust that got sit up and look around."
On a typical Friday night I am
Either in or out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
