Interests

Apart from my interests in Agile software development, I enjoy collecting vintage baseball cards. My focus is on sets from the 1950s and 1970s, and vintage Braves cards (Boston, Milwaukee, Atlanta) from all eras.

I also enjoy cooking New Orleans cuisine and grilling outdoors.

I used to be an avid golfer, playing primarily at my home course of Atlanta Country Club; but, now I usually just walk regularly (when weather permits).
