Personal Interests
I love to travel internationally and within the US; my favorite trips have been to Alaska (dog mushing, kayaking, hiking, and driving the breath-taking Seward Highway), London (love the museums and the court of law in session), Italy (the art, food, people, and scenery), Amsterdam (museums, family, food, and art), France (weeklong workshop at Chartres Cathedral), Washington DC (heard the US Supreme Court in session!), and Boston.
