Outside of my academic life, I maintain an active lifestyle. I enjoy swimming, rock climbing, and biking. I spend most of my vacation time in national parks around the country and have visited 13 so far. The next one on my list is the Grand Canyon National Park.
I use my free time to expand my knowledge of skills I find interesting and useful. Currently, I'm learning to play the piano, and doing small-to-medium scale projects on my 1980 Honda CX500 motorcycle.
