I have lived in quite a number of places ranging as far East as India and as far North as Alaska. Having relocated to PHX, I can't imagine enduring another harsh winter or sultry summer day. I find the arid sunny climate here yields itself nicely to my outdoor hobbies - hiking, biking, kayaking, roaming aimlessly through a a forest with a high canopy or motorcycling leisurely on roads less traveled.
On a personal note, I've been described as someone who's affectionate, adventurous, a fiscal planner and attentive to kids. My continual interest to improve my surroundings and help others brings out my creative vibe.
Literature: Stephen Hawking, Ray Kurzweil, Julia Sweeney, DIY material.
Movies: The Namesake, Slumdog Millionaire, Office Space, and Airplane to name a few.
TV shows: Nova, How Stuff's Made; As Time Goes By, Downton Abbey, Doc Martin, DCI Banks, Indian Summers, A Place to Call Home and many other BBC titles.
Music: I'm partial to classical and smooth jazz since I enjoy my violin and viola. Someday I'll expand this collection with a cello and piano/keyboard. Aside from that, I've taken interest to Bhangra or Bollywood musicals.
