I was born and raised in the Miami Valley. If I'm not in the office, you'll often find me outside spending time with my three children and eight grandchildren, teaching the young ones how to bait a hook and do their own push-ups. I train dogs for a hobby. I have been fortunate enough to have traveled six continents filled with activities including backpacking through the Rocky Mountains, canoeing the Canadian wilderness, climbing Mt Kilimanjaro, and traveling by dogsled with Inuit's on the Artic's frozen sea-ice. I feel I am very lucky.
