I love being outside doing almost anything including hiking, biking, canoeing, and gardening. I also enjoy dancing (Cajun, zydeco, swing, tango, ballroom, contradancing) and I'm a beginning mandolin player. While keeping up with my professional reading consumes much of my reading time, I also enjoy reading fiction.
