Apples (the food): farming, culinary practices, varieties, history, genetics. (I sometimes work with a local orchard on their website.)


Dungeons & Dragons: playing and being a game master. Collaborative storytelling and problem solving, served with a healthy dose of dumb puns.


Hiking: Columbus metro parks, state parks around Ohio (Clifton Gorge is my favorite), and national parks (Yellowstone and Cuyahoga Valley in particular). I also like birdwatching.
