FUN / HOBBY SITES


Everyone has to have a hobby, right? You know the old saying “All work and no play makes Larry a…” Well… it’s true! I definitely like toys!

Some people like to fish. Some like to collect stamps. Still others like to knit. Me? Well, I’m pretty diversified – while my interests tend to shift from time to time, speed always seems to play a part in the equation. I’ve always been interested in anything that is fast… and extra bonus points if it’s LOUD!

To me, there is something inherently awesome and visceral about the sound of a motor at redline or an exhaust that is running fully open.

Outside of writing, research, and speaking, my main hobbies are motorcycles, cars, and lately I’ve started to really get into UAV (drone) flying. 

I’ve been riding motorcycles since I was a little kid and have amassed quite a collection over the years. As I’ve gotten older (and have seen first hand how devastating a motorcycle accident can be), I’ve begun to scale back on the bikes and focus more on my car collection.
