Interests: well, obviously i love working with my hands and making things, but i also love music, i love to read and play sports - especially basketball. when i was a kid i would read as often and as much as i could, even reading a book while standing in the lunch line. i don't have much time (correction: i don't make much time) to read at this point in my life, but i still like to sneak in a good book once in awhile. as for basketball...um, let's just say i was a lot better at it in high school. i'm totally out of practice! ps. I don't know why this text won't publish capital letters, but apparently that's the way it has to be. Just wanted you to know that. :-)
