I grew up in the Chicago area, and lived there all my adult life except when at college. In 1996, I moved to Colorado to be away from the big city and closer to the mountains.
My favorite way to travel is by train, and my favorte destination is Seattle, where my son and his family live.
My main hobby is woodworking - my house provides seemingly endless projects. I also like tinkering in almost any form.
I ride my bicycle for exercise, fun, and transportation - I've been "car free" for 15 years.
