Dave Switzer's Favourite Activities

Card games I like to play include bid euchre, hearts, and trump (also known as screw-your-neighbour). Board games I like to play include Settlers of Catan, Ticket to Ride, and Elfenland.

I play the piano, and until recently I sang a choir for many years.

Tennis is a sport which I learned only a few years ago, but I enjoy it very much. I also enjoy volleyball and ping pong. Once in a while I like to bowl, water ski, and climb mountains.

I plan to live to be 120, and by then I should have travelled most of the world (and possibly farther). So far I've travelled to various parts of Canada and the United States, and I went to Europe a few years ago. In 2000 I went to Egypt and Israel, and in 2001 I went to Trinidad and Tobago. I would also like to go to Africa to see great apes in the wild.

I studied Computer Science and English at the University of Waterloo, and I have a teaching degree from Queen's University. I taught Computer Science at the University of Waterloo for many years, and taught computer studies at St. John's-Kilmarnock School for one year. I also worked as a developer and technical writer for Int3s.

Current TV shows I like are The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, The Big Bang Theory, Castle, Glee, and Raising Hope. Here are what I think are the 8 best science fiction and fantasy TV shows:

I read a lot, mostly fiction, and of that most is science fiction and fantasy. Here are my favourite books, of the ones that I've read in the past few years:
