Personal Information:

I love being active outdoors, especially hiking, camping, kayaking, mountain biking, skiing and soccer. If I’m not doing one of those things, I’m either building a blanket fort with my kids or remodeling our historic home. Anytime you want to have a nerdy conversation about classic video games, 80’s pop music, or dystopian fiction, just stop by my office!
