Interests and Hobbies:
I am a perfectly average swimmer, but I still participate in 1 or 2 local triathlons and the Utah Summer Games (swimming). I try to stay in shape, and the aforementioned activities help keep me motivated.
My current interests are in non-fiction, so I've been reading a lot about the true history of Mormonism: An Insider's View of Mormon Origins (Palmer); Studies of the Book of Mormon (B.H.Roberts); Cowdery's book on the origin of the Book for Mormon; Jesus Interrupted by Bart Ehrman, and many others.
The Invention of Lying, The Wizard of Oz, Life is Beautiful, Charade, much of Hitchcock's work, and dozens of others
