My mission is to recognize and take good care of the gifts I have been given. Therefore, in my time away from the office I enjoy biking, trail running, or other fitness activities to take care of my health. I take care of my relationships with my wife, Sandy, and our two adult children by enjoying time with Sandy and staying in communication with the busy millennials. Sandy and I have learned that being a grandparent is a really good deal, especially compared to being the parents of teenagers.

In the rest of my time, I like to feed my curiosity about how the world works in areas ranging from politics and economics to spirituality and mechanics…and everything in between. I enjoy being involved with the Johnston Rotary and served as their Club President.
