My outdoor interests are varied and centered around family and friends. My wife Judie and I have been active members Tualatin County Club since 2008. Alpine skiing has long been a favorite Winter sport with family and friends weekends often spent at Mt. Bachelor. How can you live in the Pacific Northwest without taking advantage of its outdoor opportunities to hike and bike. In addition, Judie and I are also active movie goers and belong to the Silver Screen Club at the Northwest Film Center. Reading became a passion at an early age and a favorite book is Babbitt by Sinclair Lewis with its tale of family intrigue.
