Interests & Hobbies
In my free time, I enjoy reading, playing the piano, games and puzzles, and spending time outdoors. My wonderful wife, Tania, is a professor of oncology at Loma Linda University School of Pharmacy.
The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they reveal knowledge.
They have no speech, they use no words;
no sound is heard from them.
Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.
--Psalm 19:1-4 (NIV)
