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.

“Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.” - St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta
