I love to travel and have traveled extensively throughout the world. As of this year, I will have traveled in 32 countries outside of the USA, as well as having visited 47 of the 50 states in the USA. I greatly enjoy learning of other cultures and visiting sites of ancient civilizations. In addition, I enjoy singing and will often be found singing in a local community choir where I live. In the past I have sung with choirs like the Metropolitan Chorus in Washington, DC and the University Community Choir here in Tucson.
