Any special interests, hobbies, or fun facts?

In my spare time, I like to dabble in calligraphy - a form of decorative handwriting. In addition, I love putting together cheese plates that are full of different flavors, textures and colors- like a piece of art. I also really enjoy eating them... in moderation, of course.
