My spare time is usually spent hanging out with my family and friends.  I love traveling.  I have been to 27 of the 50 states and to 8 different countries.  I speak conversational Spanish. It would be my dream to be fluent in at least 10 different languages.  I am married and have a son.  I love reading (I usually read about 50 books a year mostly fiction), watching movies/tv (I have a large DVD collection) and listening to music (I listen to just about everything including Rock and Country).  We have a weird parakeet named Snow; he makes us laugh. My son and I adore animals.
