Gerry Miller - A Character With Character
...because interesting people are more fun to work with
I love the outdoors and really cherish any time I get to hike mountains and canoe swift rivers. Hunting and golf are fun, especially the part that involves walking outdoors and enjoying the scenery (that is why I rarely make par and don’t have a wall covered with trophies). I get into home improvement projects (sometimes over my head) - for example, I replaced my wall-to-wall carpeting with marble tile and built a fish pond and waterfall in the past year. I am also trying to learn how to play piano so I can someday create my own R&B music.
