I'm also an avid hiker and kayaker and photographer. Actually, anything that has to do with outdoors I'm ready for.
I've been a programmer for MANY a year with both with AT&T and IBM.
My wife Linda and I love cruising and visiting new places.
I'm also a pretty fair Graphic Artist with a few small ( but mighty!) customers.
Besides my violin, I love my Les Pauls and Marshall half stack. Just can't beat the tone of the Les Paul/Marshall combination.
For true musical love, it has to be the blues and of course, Mozart and Bach.
