What are your hobbies or interests outside of work?

I enjoy traveling to historic and scenic locations, and enjoy a bit of amateur photography as a hobby. I am interested in industrial and transportation history, and I collect a fair amount of reading material regarding such subjects.

If you had unlimited time to volunteer for any cause which would you chose and why?

I would love to volunteer at a history museum or historical society as I have a passion for history. I volunteered at a historical society museum in the area for about a year, and I enjoyed every day I volunteered there.
