Hobbies and Interests
"I am an avid runner and rollerblader. Although I like to stay active, any attempt to play an organized sport is hindered by my lack of coordination and two left feet. I’ll take any opportunity to get outdoors. I used to hate the winter but in recent years I’ve grown a new love for all things outdoors including winter activities. I love to cook, especially with ingredients from the garden. Jamie Oliver is one of my go to chefs! I’m a big fan of pets so any pet stories are welcome."
