Thank you for visiting my web page. I live in State College, PA. I'm 6' tall and yes, I used to play basketball. I work at Penn State University and I work for the Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Education in the College of Agricultural Sciences.
 
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with friends and family, renting movies, hiking, the beach, reading, traveling, walking, exercising, my cats, dancing, and surfing the net. I'm addicted to EBAY.

I'm huge Toby Keith fan (I've seen him five times). He could read the phone book to me and I could be entertained for hours. Some of the other concerts I've seen are Weird Al Yankovic (24 times), Backstreet Boys, Rascal Flatts, Dixie Chicks, Goo Goo Dolls, Janet Jackson, Neil Diamond (twice), +LIVE+ (four times and have tickets to see them on April 23, 2006), Rusted Root, Rod Stewart, Better Than Ezra, Gloria Estefan, Garth Brooks, Styx (Twice), Pat Benetar, Survivor, REO Speedwagon,Allanis Morisette, Journey, Garbage, and Def Leppard and many more. No, that is not a typo beside Weird Al. I had the privilege of meeting Al and his band the first time I saw him and it snowballed from there and I became a friend of the band. As you can see, I enjoy all music (except rap).
