Community participation

Board Member of The Hillmen Foundation


When not working I look forward to spending time with my wife and family and staying active in our unique community nestled here in the Sierra foothills. My recreational activities include hiking, skiing, golfing, mountain biking, practicing yoga, and gardening. I enjoy traveling, and I'm a fan of a wide variety of music and literature.
