Other Fun Stuff


I read a lot of books, mostly non-fiction.  Recently, my favourites have been Billion Dollar Whale, The Wright Brothers, and A Spy Among Friends.  I also highly recommend the book Never Split the Difference.

When I’m not reading, I love walking around and sometimes I even strap on heavy duty shoes for intense walking, also known as “hiking.”

Finally, if I’m not reading or walking, I’m probably hosting a dinner party.  I love a good dinner party.
