About me

I have done a huge variety of things in my life, not only in the legal world, but in my recreational, family, and private lives. I have a private pilot license, I've climbed mountains, paddled Class IV+ rapids on whitewater rivers, travelled extensively, hunted, fished, acted, written books, sang in church choirs, sailed, swam competively, taught a course in a community college, cooked, gardened, bicycled long distances, and hiked and camped extensively.
