About Me

I"m an avid soccer player, and enjoy continuing to try and keep these creaky knees going playing both indoor and outdoor.  I also enjoy living vicariously by coaching both my sons.  There is nothing quite like coaching 6-7 year olds and also 3-4 year olds.  My wife has commented it looks like herding cats.

I also enjoy touring Idaho's many outdoor options, particularly via backpacking and fishing.  I wish I'd paid more attention as a kid to Grandpa Miles's and Uncle Perry's many fishing tricks.

Beyond that, involvement in my community and my faith remain important to me.  I grealy enjoy being involved in both through a variety of activities.
