In 2012, I bought my second home in a wilderness setting in Sewanee, TN, close to a small University where I also teach part time. The bluff view is awesome. My career allows me the time and opportunity to do a diversity of activities. One of those is athletics. I'm pretty much a loner ... I usually train alone, as a musician and athlete, although I like seeing people. Other hobbies include travel, boating, swimming, off road motorcycling, mountain and street biking, carpentry, building stuff, taking photos, political commentary, science, and history. I like documentaries, non-fiction books, and cable news.
