Rolling around with my friends  is my major pass time. I am a purple belt under Prof. Tony Debelak at Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Aurora.



Playing piano is one of my favorite ways to relax. I began playing in my late teens. I’m inspired by Ray Charles, Keith Jarret, and Erik Satie.



I'm very content digging in the dirt and growing things I can share. My favorites include tomatoes, strawberries, and blueberries. I’ve planted ten fruit trees in the last two years including apple, pear, peach, cherry and plum trees.

And here I am getting hipped tossed into oblivion by one of my training partners.
