His hobbies include socializing, playing his Wii, laughing at other people's expense and doing anything besides working.
He has two pet lizards, Reggie and Simone, and three tattoos: a Zodiac Ram on his arm, a rooster above his ankle and a kanji tattoo he and some of his Air force buddies share that reads "Brothers, Together, Eternally."
