As far as personal interests, he has many. While he loves sports in general, baseball & football rank the highest on his list. Back in the day, he played both baseball (in the Northbridge town league and later in a men’s independent league) and football (at Northbridge High and for several years in the Worcester Men’s Flag Football league). Even though he is getting up there age-wise, he is still an adrenaline junky that loves roller coasters. His all-time favorite coaster is The American Eagle located at Six Flags Great America. He also loves Star Wars, the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, South Park and politics.

jinsdAs for music, he is a fan of many heavy metal and rock & roll bands. His all time favorite band is Rush. But, he also ranks Led Zeppelin, Slayer, Tool, Black Sabbath, Clutch, Mastodon, and Primus high on his playlists. Interestingly enough, the Prof played bass guitar in several local rock bands. During his nearly two decades playing on the New England rock scene, he recorded several cds with multiple bands, appeared on both WAAF’s and WHJY’s local music shows, and shared the stage with many of New England’s more popular regional bands throughout the 90s and early 2000’s. The high point of his music career came when he played alongside Kid Rock and Godsmack at what was then a huge Worcester musical festival (Localpalooza).

In case you are curious, here are three albums from two of the Prof’s bands – Shortfuse: Fused Shut released in 1998 and Loud is Good…But Louder is Better released in 2001, and Standard Deviation (aka Deviation of Standards): Songs from Back in the Day released in 2006.

Finally, he enjoys photography. He has long used Pentax cameras. His current DSLR is a K5.
