About me

I am a happily married father of three.  I enjoy spending time with my family, reading (The Economist and Atlantic Monthly), and exercise (www.crossfit.com).


 


I am also an officer who is actively serving in the Washington Army National Guard where, from 2003 to 2004, I deployed to varied countries throughout the Middle East in support of post 9/11 policies and objectives.  Prior to that I had the honor of serving in the US Army's 75th Ranger Regiment.
