HobbiesHi, my wife and I enjoy an active outdoor lifestyle where we engage in a variety of activities with our dogs. I run 5k 3x a week as part of a running challenge for my brother's running blog MEAN guy running. He is a math teacher and an 'average runner', hence the connection between 'mean' and 'average'. I have been surfing for over 25 years and thoroughly enjoy time in the ocean, and that is what drew me to hawaii.
My wife and I both prefer a quiet night at home as opposed to a night on the town and helping learners online is a great way to enjoy time!
