Interests

  • Until the fall of 2009, I was an avid runner but after suffering a severe ankle sprain my focus shifted to Ice Hockey where I try to play at least twice a week. While my game is continuously improving, it is a challenge since not only does one have to skate well but also it is important to develop what I would describe as a solid "hockey intelligence" to have a chance of making an impact on the ice.
  • We have for the most part (does it ever really end?) restored our historic home in Philadelphia.
  • I am passionate about woodworking, painting and found sculpture.
  • We absolutely love all of our wonderful kitties who liven up our home.
