There's more to life...
In addition to my professional life, I have hobbies. Probably too many of them, if I'm honest. That said, my hobbies make me happy, so I'm not giving them up!
I enjoy a fair amount of time biking on the roads and trails of North Carolina, though I must confess... I miss the mountain bike trails in Wyoming! I especially love the challenge of a long, steep mountain road.
I mentioned earlier that I like to think of myself as being a creative person. I have been running a freelance sculpture business for a while. My goal is to use whatever scientific resources that I can find to reconstruct prehistoric animals with a reasonable amount of accuracy.
I also dabble in painting. I am an absolute rank-amateur, but what the hell, it's fun.
Finally, and when I'm not doing any of the above, you can probably find me turning a wrench on my old Datsun.
