About me

Outside of the law, I enjoy golfing, surfing, hiking and backpacking. 


I am grateful to have a wife and friends who enjoy the outdoors as much as I do.  As our children grow it is a joy to introduce them to the world around them.  Much of my time is living vicariously through their young eyes and minds.
