My Interests

Boxing:

I’ve been a fan of boxing for quite some time. Even during my time in Iraq, I was able to train in the ring with some of the contenders. I wouldn’t think of going in the ring, mainly because I like my brain cells where they are.

Obstacle Courses:

Also a physical activity, but with a little more problem solving. The thinking man’s running! And also the teammate’s running. While running can be a team activity, obstacle courses are, to a greater degree, a team sport. Especially spartan races, which require the help of other people–strangers even–to accomplish the course. Even if their help isn’t needed, it’s always nice to help them out.

 

Reading:

Whether it be an audio book, an e-book, or a plain old physical book; reading is an excellent and intellectually rewarding hobby of mine. This is clear from the number and variety of books I’ve added to my goodreads list.

 

Nature Outings:

They are always an excellent time to relax, and enjoy the wonders of nature.

 

Meditation:

I have been practicing mindfulness meditation for a few years now. Whether it be a short walk, or a longer bout of sitting, I try to practice mindfulness during various times of my day.

Coding:

Well, obviously! It’s not just a career, but a way of life! Whether it be advancing technologies, or new ways of doing old things. I was sold on this path when I heard a professor say, “There’s a million ways to do the same thing.” And that is one of the things that make it seem so limitless. I am more than happy to embrace new technologies, and constantly aspire to learn them (thank goodness for e-learning!).
