Although my passport says I am an American, I consider myself to be a ‘Citizen of the World'. I believe that every country/place has something special (or many special things) about it. I grew up in the state of Indiana, and have lived in several places within the U.S.A. (my favourite: San Francisco, California). I've also lived in England (also studied there), the Republic of (South) Korea (6+ years), and Germany (1+ years). Additionally, I have traveled extensively for long periods of time all around the world.
My interests are many. They include: travelling (I have been to 23 countries by present count), photography, learning about cultures and languages, reading (especially history, travelogues, literature and fiction), watching/appreciating films, listening to music, appreciating art/going to museums, hiking, bicycling, watching and playing all kinds of sports, playing board games, enjoying all kinds of food (some cooking), drinking fine wine and beers of the world, and surfing the Internet. And I’m open for more. For instance, I hope to skydive one day.
