Personal Stuff

I was born in November 1965 in Buffalo, New York. I spent most of my childhood living in the Rochester, New York area, only a few miles from Lake Ontario. I have two brothers and three sisters. Two of my sisters and my two brothers are from South Korea. They were orphans and my parents adopted them in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Our family took many camping vacations when we were kids so we got to travel a lot. My favorite trips as a kid were to Banff and Jasper National Parks in Alberta, Canada; and to Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, Canada. We also did many trips to Vermont in the summertime to go fishing and canoeing.

I am the oldest kid in my family. My next youngest sister has her own child now. Both of my brothers are U.S. Marines, one of them was in peacekeeping force in Haiti a few years ago. My youngest sibling, a sister, turned 21 in 1997, so I guess now we aren't kids anymore. I am very proud of my parents and brothers and sisters, but I don't see them much because I live in Arizona and they all live in the eastern U.S.

I live in Tempe, Arizona, and I really like living in the western U.S. because it has a lot of wide open spaces. I drive a Saturn (it's a planet, after all), and one of my favorite things to do in my free time is to drive, especially long drives through the desolate parts of Nevada and west Texas. I have never been married and I don't have any pets (I travel too much to be able to take care of a pet). I enjoy reading and writing. I like watching NHL Hockey, and on TV I usually watch CNN, MSNBC, TV Food Network and Independent Film Channel. I also like some shows such as "Simpsons," "Frasier," "X-files" and of course MTV (when they are showing music, not stupid game shows).
