Movie No singled out movies. Any movie that makes me think, takes me away, and have a strong emotional kick.

Sports Team None for me. Not in to watching sports, but enjoy playing them when I have the opportunity.

Hobby Golf, scuba before kids, working out, skiing again after 20 years, reading.

Family Time I have a wife and two wonderful daughters – one in Elementary School and the other in Jr. High School, and little 10 pound doggy named Minnie. I enjoy spending time with them on our trips to Hawaii, Disney World and the Caribbean.

Television Show Myth Busters, Brain Games, Castle, Survivor, Seinfeld.

Radio I love listing to NPR shows. Some of my favorites – Car Talk, This American Life, Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me, Marketplace, and Science Friday.
