Playing pickup and recreational ice hockey at a pretty low level. Good thing I like it so much because I'm not very good at it. But it is a great work out and a lot of fun to play. Been playing for most of the last 10 years.
Started writing niche blogs. Currently focused on a recreational ice hockey blog (bagofpucks.com) and a technology solutions blog (coderefactored.com). Looking to engage in more writing and documenting including journalism and story telling.
Interest in history. Specifically World War II History. I do not consider myself a history buff because I have so much to learn, but I am always seeking information. MASSIVE consumer of non-fiction literature and documentaries from multiple points of view.
