    Fire and EMS isn't my "hobby"... it's my profession.

    To answer your question.....
    Cars, detailing, photography, flying, free lance writing/reporting, beer afficionado, collecting fire memorabilia.

    We share similar interests (I have 10 year old twins and I love beer).

    In my limited free time, I read, bicycle, and am the computer geek for friends and family.
