Just for Fun

When not at work, Bruce enjoys a variety of pursuits indoors and out. He keeps a vegetable garden along with fruit and nut trees, and is an avid bicycle rider having participated in dozens of century and cross-state rides.

A fan of good restaurants and great cooking, his favorite local spot is the Osteria Papavero, and had his best meal ever at Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill in Las Vegas. Bruce’s favorite dishes to cook include risotto, big salads, and chocolate chip cookies (his own secret recipe.)
