Continued in his own words:
"One of my main interests is that of helping orphans. Pragmatic Christianity is very important to me. In particular, helping the helpless, such as orphans, is a passionate concern of mine. I lead Christian mission trips to Russia and Cambodia each year. I can translate Russian. I am an expert in the reign of Cambodia’s King Norodom Sihanouk, including his overthrow in 1970, his exile in China and North Korea and his return to power by the US in 1993. I also have expertise in how Russian government policies affect Christian mission activities in Russia. My hobbies include chess, racquetball, volleyball and playing the classical guitar."
