I don't really have time for much of anything else. In the summer time I'm sailing, and doing boat projects, either maintenance, repairs or upgrades. In the winter, I bring projects home. I like to do my own splicing (all types of line) and this year I'm starting to mess around with sailmaking/modifying (re-cutting the dinghy sail).

I'm also a big fan of college football and Ohio State in particular. In the fall, most Saturdays are occupied with watching games. I try to make it out to Columbus catch a game in person every couple of years or so. It's not so much of an activity, but if you don't think it's a passion, come watch a game with me, especially if a ref blows a call!

In the past I was in to aviation. Like a lot of sailors I meet, I got my private pilots license and had some hours toward an instrument rating. I have about 150 hours total, mostly in Piper's, but haven't flown since the weekend before 9/11. They shut down the airspace system and I decided that would be a good time to take a break from flying for a while and in the mean time, a friend invited me along as crew in some round the cans racing on Lake Erie. I don't think I have to explain how the rest of the story goes, I'm sure it's a common theme.

Academically I enjoy learning about new topics in optical physics and imaging. That's my line of work and enjoy it quite a bit. I also like reading non-fiction about history, medieval Europe and military history in particular. I really enjoy reading naval fiction from the age of sail. I've read the Hornblower series by Forrester and I just finished "The Nutmeg of Consolation" by O'brien.

I agree I would not want to do it here in NY as it is a brutal business and it is going down hill quickly.

Thanks, the LS6-b one is the racing glider, the 304CZ one is a cool fun glider, the second picture was at the NE Regionals lineup at Sugarbush.

The one in a Hakama was taken at the Aikido dojo but was part of Iaido training.

Nice. The head instructor at our dojo, an 8th degree in karate and jui jitsu, is also a 3rd degree in Aikido. We have quite a few aikido techniques incorporated into the jui jitsu training. I would love at some point to attend a good aikido dojo and train in it formally from the ground up.

Re: What are your other passions?

I love cruising, well with a boat too but I mean cruising with this one:



I mean away from highways and big cities, preferably on twisting mountain roads. I enjoy cultural tourism and that is related with cruising and photography.

I like diversity and different cultures.

I like food, wine and bear not only as a gourmet but also as a cultural expression.

I like reading, I like music.

I like boats, all kind of boats if well designed.

I like family meetings ...a lot. We are tight:



I like swimming.

Former passions (age put a stop to some, others are in hold):

Sports:

Volleyball (at top level), Basketball, Handball, Football.

Motorcycle racing (raid)
motorcycle touring (road and across mountains of road)
Airplane acrobatics
Surf with a kayak
spearfishing
carreiros

Baseball
My son (high school senior baseball player)
Reading anything on sailing
Did I say baseball
I think perfect spring vacation would be sailing around Florida to attend as many spring training games as possible.

Re: What are your other passions?

I have a dog that loves me.

I guess I love her, too.

Even though she's kind of a doofus and smells bad.
