In his spare time, he writes and plays music on instruments made mostly of wood. He is a fan of the St. Louis Rams, and enjoyed through their all too-brief heyday in the years 2000 and 2001. He has become a fan of all things considering "the football that is not American in origin" thanks to the corrupting influence of his office mates. His favorite team is the Birmingham City Blues. Keep Right On!
