The one thing I am passionate about...
I am most passionate about my two young boys - everything about them. I'm not only passionate about them, but also extremely proud of them both. Each are very different, but are wonderful little treasures that I have trouble believing are mine. Don't get me wrong with all this gushing, sometimes I find it hard to believe they are human, too.
I typically spend my leisure time
Before children I loved going out to eat and see a movie. I also enjoyed biking, playing soccer, hiking and relaxing. I still like these, but I find myself watching TV (mostly discover, history, etc) - no soaps and dramas, please. And God forbid any thing like American Idol. I like to do things with my kids - and this horizon is beginning to greatly expand now that that both are no longer toddlers (fabulous time, but restricting).
The most influential person in my life has been
Friendship. The rest is pointless without it. First and foremost, a partner should be a best friend. If not, why not simply get a pet.
The first thing people notice about me
My towering height. Michael J. Fox has nothing on me - aside from a camera crew to photo him from angles that make him appear taller. Well, my feet reach the ground and, though not long, I've been told they are one of my better attributes.
The last book I read and enjoyed
What is this, a test? I've just picked up "The cure for anything is salt water." Stay tuned. For fiction (don't laugh) I've read all Harry Potter books. I work with teenagers and heard about this when it first came out. I picked it up and found it to be a very creative, intelligent and, well, just fun read.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My two beautiful boys
- The good fortune I've had in my life
- My family and close friends
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
My sense of humor, humility and ability to always remember that we should never grow up too much because life is too important.

A little more about me
Who doesn't? I'm have no reason to keep secrets. If you have questions, I've likely got answers. If not, I'll make one up. Its kind of a job requirement right now. An answer of "I don't know" to a "Daddy, why . . " question isn't often accepted. Or its just too complicated to explain. By the way, did you know that the sky is blue because it's the favorite color of most people on earth. And yes, people's likes can change. A long time ago the sky was purple. It was a LONG time ago so almost no one remembers.
