I am a man with many hobbies. I am most passionate about discovering vocations I have not heard of. If we encounter each other in public and I ask what excites you, it is an earnest question and not just an attempt at small talk. There are so many things I either don't know, or have invalid notions about, and finding those that have these passions to learn from is the most exciting thing I can think of.
The activity that occupies the majority of my time is computers, both the philosophical and physical manifestations of the topic. I am a professional software architect at Garmin International where I build the infrastructure for our OSes. The aspect of this task that I enjoy the most is finding ways to streamline the development process.
When I was in high school I wanted to build robots, specifically those that could be used by medical professionals. The coolest thing I had seen was the robotic arm Luke received in "The Empire Strikes Back". I knew that the technology wasn't there yet, but I thought that using automation for physical therapies would be just as helpful. Unfortunately, I was not able to realize that dream, but I have been extremely fortunate in now having the resources to build robots as a hobby. I am currently looking for a robotics group, because it gets lonely building robots in your basement by your self.
I have been a life long practitioner of various martial arts. I am currently looking for a style such as Tai Chi. Due to injuries I am not able to practice high impact forms, but something with great control and smooth movements would allow me to return to my regiment. I require a structure that allows me to work through my body to keep the my body and mind in balance. I love to talk about martial arts with anyone that will listen, so feel free to bring it up while talking to me.
I love cycling. Currently I am focused on road cycling, but that is primarily because that is the best form we have in the area I live in. I participate in the BikeMS ride every year. I find the organization to be well run and they utilize the money well in my opinion. If you are not familiar with them please investigate them on your own.
