Hobbies and Personal Interests

When I have free time, I enjoy playing tennis. Florida, and Tallahassee in particular, is a great place for outdoor activities, and after 20+ years away from the game, I picked up tennis again a few years ago.  I’ve spent many hours trying to ‘unlearn’ all the bad habits I taught myself as a kid, with the last one (and most challenging) being to learn a real tennis serve. I enjoy free hitting for exercise, so if you are in the NTRP 3.5-4.5 range, we can probably make it work out – contact me. I’ve even managed to fit in a quick hit at conferences. It is always nice to get out and hit the ball for a little bit and see a new part of the city you’re visiting.

I’m a lifelong musician as well, and still enjoy performing live. I play all of the band instruments (drums, guitar, saxophone, bass), but the electric bass is my primary instrument. It has now been quite a few years since my last personal project, which was performing in a hip-hop/funk/rock collective. About a year before the pandemic, I had returned to music via a standing gig with ’36-Strong’, a local Tallahassee rock cover band. It’s still going today. I’m also an accomplished Karaoke singer and ready to belt it out anytime!
