I am an avid outdoorsman, and regularly hunt waterfowl, deer, turkey, coyote, and other big game. I also like to fish, hike, camp, and hang out around bonfires.
For fun, I pretend to be a rock star and enjoy playing bass guitar in a few local alternative bands here in Youngstown. One of those bands was a local punk institution that helped to develop a downtown bar called "Cedars" waaaay back in the 1980s.
Although I love to read, my career tends to pull me away from that passion. History appeals the most to me.
Another passion is foreign languages and cultures. I speak a few languages now and am currently studying Spanish and Italian. I have travelled globally to the Carribean, England, Scotland, Germany, Italy, Kenya, and China. Here in the US, I have been to about 25 States.
After a ridiculous hiatus (that's a high-falootin' way of saying "a break"), I put a bike together and enjoyed "wind therapy" as often as I can.
I am equally comfortable in a flea market(can you say "Four Seasons"?) as I am at a high-brow black tie event. You might stumble into me at an auction, a poker run, or a muscle car show too.
