Personal Interests and Hobbies:
When I have free time I enjoy watching TV series, football and of course following the ups and downs of the New York Yankees. I enjoy traveling and seeking out local foods. I enjoy cooking for my wife and enjoying a good bottle of wine or a nip of single malt. I also enjoy reading and going to the movies but this has changed a bit since I now have a 4-year-old boy who is a chattery ball of energy and has become my new most important personal interest.
