Free Time

“I believe we should work hard, play hard.  Both work and play are vital to each other.”

Rest & Relaxation

When I have some free time to myself, I have several activities that I enjoy.  For the last 20 years, I have had the opportunity to make biking part of my daily commute.  I now average about 100-150 miles a week cycling to and from work.  It is nice to be able to combine my exercise with my commute, even if it means biking year-long throughout Chicago’s cold winters.   In the summer months, I am an avid sailor.  I picked up sailing over 20 years ago as well.  Living just a few blocks from Lake Michigan has afforded me the opportunity to learn and become quite skilled at sailing Hobie Catamarans and mono-haul sailboats.   And finally, I am passionate about music.  I go to just about every music fest that comes to Chicago, when I can.  I have regularly attended Lollapalooza, Pitchfork, Riot Fest, North Coast, and Blues Fest.   I am also a big fan of Spotify’s, “Friday New Music”.  I love new and different sounds, wherever they come from.  I probably have a few thousand new tracks in my Spotify favorite list, and that list is growing and very eclectic.
