I am a software developer with a pension for pipes and cigars. In my spare time, I also like to work on refinishing older pipes and have brought many older, shabby pipes into beautiful condition.

I dislike cigarettes though some of the hand rolling stuff is actually pretty good, and my favorite smoke oscillates between cigars and pipes on a regular basis. Tobacco is amazingly diverse stuff. My favorite pipe blends have been VaPers and some aromatics. Burley is good, and I actually like Prince Albert. Lately my interest has taken me into pure virginias. VERY promising.

Life is good. Enjoy it to the fullest.
