For me, I've shown horses (Morgans and American Saddlebreds) all since I was about 5 and I've played and studied classical piano since I was 6.

Here's a video of me showing at the New England Regional Morgan Horse show:



And here's a close up pic of me riding the same horse in the video winning the roses at the Morgan Horse Grand National and World Championship Show:



Here's an image of me on a different horse at the same show:



And here's a pic of me playing the piano:



And here's a video (not of me) of the Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No. 2 in C-minor that I'm currently working on with my professor, Tatiana Kuleshova at the University of Central Oklahoma. She studied at the Moscow Conservatory and her father is the world renowned pianist, Valery Kuleshov, also of the Moscow Conservatory and silver medalist at the National Van Cliburn festival held in the US.




So what are your hobbies other than aviation?

Traveling. My only problem is I can't find a travel buddy to go to far off places I want to see. For instance, I want to go to Australia but none of my friends want to go. I want to do a cruise down to Mexico but no one will go. It kinda pisses me off.

Surfding when I am home, running, hiking, relaxing outdoors, street luging, baseball, reading books that do not have to do with class work.


Life is better when you surf.

I know, the only travel buddy I have is a girl that lives in Chicago, but when we travel, we have an awesome time. We went to Japan last year and had a great time. Not sure what we've planned for this year. We were going to Dubai in March but we had to cancel our plans and my "half" refundable ticket due to scheduling problems. Sad Oh well, guess we might try and do it sometime later on.

Cool! I've actually been playing classical piano since age 4. Started jazz around age 12. But my main thing is classical piano.

I'm currently working on Beethoven's 3rd piano concerto and I'm absolutely loving it.

Yeah same problem here too, you should see my friends faces when I ask them to go on holiday to Syria, or Iran...!

For a while I just had far too many hobbies, but I have sort of cut down a bit, so my main ones are now as follows,in no particular order;

Mountain Biking
Photography (not just aviation, in fact hardly at all)
Travelling - always attempting to get on old and interesting airlines/aircraft
Badminton
Cricket
Model Railways
Music
Gardening/DIY

My scooter (is it really a hobby?)

Flying (sorta half hobby, half career training)


That's pretty much it. Haven't had much interest in any of the above lately, for one reason or another.

the west coast eagles AFL football club...blue & gold in the video clip, I go to all their games and follow them around the country if I can. being at the winning grand final last year would probably be the absolute highlight of all my world travels! enjoy this last 5 mins of the 2006 grand final, it still sends shivers down me.



travel is the second favourite hobby

-Watching NFL Football- NY Giants and Cincinnati Bengals. WHO-DEY!
-Watching baseball (NY Yankees and Cincinnati Reds, though both suck this year)
-Watching hockey. Go Rangers!
-Golfing when I can (time and money aren't exactly plentiful as a college student)
-Going to theme parks when I can afford to. I have a season pass to Busch Gardens Tampa. I went to Cedar Point last summer and I'm hoping to make it to Holiday World this summer. Most people dont know it because I don't talk about it as much, but roller coasters and thrill rides are just as much of an interest to me as aviation.  Smile
-Politcs (though not as involved as I used to be.)

Quite by chance, my hobbies are travel, photography, cooking & international cuisine, aviation and golf, probably in that order.

With the exception of golf, they all fit nicely together: travel by plane, eat local foods of the countries we're travelling to and take lots of pictures. All I need is now is a golf course on the airport approach like the one near LHR which (when I lived down south), was great to watch the jets fly over while I played (especially Concorde at 5:10pm!).
