(pronounced eh-FISH-ee-uh-nah-doh)

The pursuit of knowledge and pleasure sets us apart from the other creatures on this earth, and those of us humans who thoroughly enjoy, passionately become educated about, ardently appreciate and devote our time to a particular activity or interest are called aficionados.

EXAMPLE: Beth’s client proudly proclaimed himself a vintage car aficionado, so when planning his new residence, she took just as great care to detail and finish out his expanded garage as she did when designing the rest of his home.
