In my spare time, I listen to music (I have a large CD and vinyl record library). I walk, and I work out at the gym. I enjoy books with cool characters and clever plotlines (Stephen King, for example). And, I'm turning my dirtbike into an on-road motorcycle. So look out, here I come! Feel free to visit The Night Shift's Facebook page for lots of album covers and other cool stuff as a companion to the show.
