Applying Statistical methods to solve interesting problems.

Family (My wife Laura, daughter Lia, and son Logan).
Organic gardening (Growing my own salads and vegetables is a great way to get fresh air and take a break from all the paper work).
Listening to music (Note that I said "listening", NOT "playing". I have NO musical talent -- don't let the long hair fool you).
Ever since I took a computer graphics programming class (back in the late '80s) I've been fascinated with the vast improvements in computer games. I do enjoy playing some of them, but I'm mostly ogling over the graphics.
Even though this may sound like work, I actually enjoy using my computers (both Windows and Macintosh) to create things (lecture notes with movies, screen shots, comics, interactive quizzes, etc.).
