About me:

  • When I am not working I enjoy spending time outdoors with my wife, Blaire, our daughter, Havana, and our super-dog, High Pockets. 
  • Whether I am backpacking in the Cascades or fly fishing in one of Washington’s rivers, I enjoy the serenity and beauty Washington has to offer.
  • One of my biggest passions is traveling the world and exploring other countries and their cultures.  I have traveled extensively throughout the United States and abroad.
  • In the winter I’m an avid skier and enjoy spending my weekends in the mountains with family and friends.
