The one thing I am passionate about...
My job, which involves the care and research into care, of unwell and/or premature infants at birth, is my biggest challenge and passion. Outside of work I golf, I fish, I watch baseball, and I travel. Those are the activities I look forward to the most. My daily favourite thing is to walk my old dog: he enjoys it as much as I do, and the world always seems like a better place when we're out in it together. Once to twice a year I like a big trip with a goal in it. For instance, hiking up a volcano one year when staying in Auckland New Zealand. Next year will probably be a trip to Spain.
I typically spend my leisure time
Paddle boarding, baseball games, golf, fishing, walking my dog
The most influential person in my life has been
One thing? That's crazy. I'm looking for LOTS of things. Someone really, really, REALLY kindly, patient, worldly, and well read.

So yeah, that's more than one thing, and reading that lot over I'm left with the impression that you'll need to be described as "blessed with patience, tolerance, q
The first thing people notice about me
Not sure about this one. Depends on if I'm smiling or not. I think its hard to read my face, so I suspect the first thing people might notice is that I'm there and may or may not be smiling. Tricky question to answer.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I binge read. So the last books I read were the entire works of Julian Stockwin: The Kydd Navel Adventures. Those were pretty good.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Being 48 and in pretty good shape
- A good life
- My daughter being awesome
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I'm pretty funny. Well, I THINK I am. I wish more people thought so.
