I'm very eclectic in my interests. Primarily I stay focused on my family (wife and dog, cat passed away recently) and try to get up to the mountains to snowboard as much as possible. I live by the beach because I hate to be overly hot and I love the ocean. There is something so refreshing about the way the ocean doesn't judge or expect anything from you. It is a massive expression of obscurity and quite frankly I identify with that very much. While we are all individual and specific in make up we are ultimately just another organism in the vast world we live it. Some may see that as a bleak view but it makes me feel more in tune with the planet to recognize my place in the totality of existence. Besides anything that humbles me even remotely is a benefit, not only to me, but also to the people who have to deal with me.
