Personal Interests
I am married and have 2 children. I enjoy gourmet cooking and baking, and working in my perennial gardens, which I've been cultivating since 1995. I have a weakness for good coffee and wine. I enjoy logic puzzles, travel, and seeking out new songs for my iPod. I began learning to play cello in early 2011 and am still terrible. I read a great deal (philosophy, science, humor and novels) and have been part of a book club since 2009. Since reading the Inheritance Cycle I've been pining for a dragon.

Community and Other Services
I am a youth volunteer coordinator for my local food pantry.
