I'm passionate about enjoying the outdoors and have backpacked the wilderness areas of the Wallow Mountains in eastern Oregon and have explored the Bob Marshall wilderness of Montana.

I also enjoy international travel and have just returned from Central America where we my family's legacy in coffee goes back 150 years.

My interest in history includes visiting places where great historical events have taken place and I also enjoy creative writing.
