What do I do during my free time?  

I spend time with my family (spouse and three kids) which keeps me very busy outside of work and graduate studies.  I've always enjoyed bicycling and have recently increased the time that I ride my bike on the walking trails in The Woodlands with an average about three to four hours per week if the weather holds.  I also like to watch television when time permits including LSU football games, Netflix documentaries, and Netflix original series.
