On a personal note

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, playing tennis, board games, watching sports, and going on nighttime walks. During rain events you may find me standing out in the rain at a local river or creek observing the hydraulic interactions that occur, and during the summer you can find me at a local pool swimming. I enjoy cooking and trying out new recipes, especially Japanese cuisine.
