A Bit About Me

My wife and I have raised four great kids and are now new grandparents. We spend our free time traveling, discovering new places and visiting friends and family. I have a real passion for the outdoors; hiking, biking, and snow skiing are favorite hobbies. A perfect day for me is being out on the slopes, putting down first tracks on fresh powder.
