Personal Details and Community Involvement
I enjoy spending time with my wife and 12 month old daughter (that keeps me busy). I'm an avid sports fan and regularly attend sporting events at one of my Alma Maters, Oregon State University. I'm proud of the fact that a sizable group of friends and I have found time to camp together every summer for the past 20 years. Other hobbies of mine include running, working out, and brewing beer.
