I was a volunteer EMT for twelve years. At one point I was so enthusiastic about it that an ex-girlfriend dubbed me a "Rescue Geek." While she never meant that to be a compliment, I have long chosen to treat it as such. While I haven't been actively involved in Emergency Services since 1998, I continue to be fascinated by the Fire, EMS, and law enforcement systems, and hope to someday become an active participant again.
In addition to an abiding affection for all things related to the Emergency Services community, I love to ski and to travel (which explains my membership in the
Pentagon Ski Club, where I get to do both), as well as cooking, and spending time with my wife and two beautiful daughters.
And, of course, I love to read. If I had to pick a single favorite genre, I guess it would be science fiction/fantasy, but I also enjoy spy and political thrillers, historical fiction, philosophy, biographies and memoirs, and the occasional classic (in other
words, just about anything). Please note that the books listed on my bookshelf below do not necessarily reflect my reading preferences, as I have registered a large number of books just for release.

Note: I've tagged all of the books that are in my possession with their status. Please PM me if you are interested in any of them. If it is TBR, I will try to move it up it the pile and get it on its way. I won't part with my PC books permanantly, but I
will consider loaning these on a case-by-case basis. Books tagged as RES are either part of a bookring/bookray, or else have already been promised to someone.
