Diversions:When not fighting fires at VisualCV.com, I enjoy World Saving, Hiking, Knowledge Seeking, Mountain Biking, Parenting, Researching, Photographing, Deep Powder Skiing, Soapboxing, World Traveling, Computer Geeking, Spying, WoW'ing, Wii'ing, Eating, PC Gaming, Burrowing, Reading, Scavenging, Sleeping, Packratting, and Zombie Apocalypse Survival Planning.
In the past few years, I've really gotten into genealogy. I especially like bringing my love of geography, regional history, internet research, and (of course) technology to bear on tough research problems. And then going into the field to validate - yes, I lurk in graveyards and ghost towns. Ask me about my grandfathers that fought within a few hundred yards of each other at Vicksburg during the Civil War - on opposite sides.
