SOCIAL MEDIA:  I'm a big fan.  I'm most active on LinkedIn.  Not really a fan of Facebook, but that is mostly to communicate with family.  New to G+, like it, and trying to learn as fast as I can.

FITNESS:  I have been a competitive athlete for most of my life in various sports.  I've competed at a local, state, regional, and national level in Olympic Style Tae Kwon Do and have been a coach/instructor.  I would rather play than watch.  If I'm watching it is probably football or something martial arts related.

HEALTH:  I do my best at trying to be as healthy as possible.  Sometimes I'm successful and sometimes I'm not.  I like to learn as much as I can about a healthy lifestyle including things outside of "traditional" medicine and simply popping a pill.

GIVING BACK:  I have been involved with Habitat for Humanity and Susan G. Komen for the Cure (3 Day Walk).  Although I haven't walked in a few years, I try to help out as much as possible with one of the best 3 Day teams in Dallas - Pink Soles in Motion!
