Hobbies and Personal Interests

When I have free time, I enjoy playing recreational 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 couple of years ago. Since the summer of 2015, I’ve spent time 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 serve’ and letting go of the ‘frying-pan’ grip! I really 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. 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 also a lifelong musician, and still enjoy performing, writing, and recording music. I play all of the band instruments (drums, guitar, saxophone, bass), and sing a bit, but the electric bass is my primary instrument. ┬áIt has now been a few years since my last gig, as my most recent project was performing in a hip-hop/funk/rock collective. These days, you are most likely to find me singing silly songs for my kids on the ukulele. Of course, they find them completely uninteresting and pay very little attention!
