About me

I've added a couple photos here to show my personal side. Two of my long time "hobbies" are high country backpacking (e.g. Wind River Range in Wyoming, Superstition Mountains in Arizona) and fastpitch softball (I play 3rd base). The backpacking photo was taken with my younger brother in the Superstitions. The fastpitch pic is of our 55+ team after winning the 2008 55+ NAFA National Championship (I'm 3rd from left in back row) .   I'm also a 2nd degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do. 


Who do you want in your foxhole?
