Interests

Both my son and his wife and daughter and her husband now have sons of their own. It is exciting to watch Dominic, Tyson and Brock grow up. I am looking forward to golfing with them. I can't help but think back about 30 years when Josh and Jennifer were that age. We accomplished a lot with my kids and helped them get off to a great start in life.

We still have a boat today. We waterski and camp as often as we can and host an event at the Boulder Reservoir for clients and friends every summer.

Community participation

When my kids were growing up I started coaching the sports that they participated in. I was told that I should be the head coach because then I could schedule when practice was. I took that advice and still give private lessons in Softball, Baseball and Swimming. I have coached a total of 70 seasons of youth sports.

I am currently the Chairman of the Investment Committee of US Masters Swimming. It has been very rewarding and fulfilling. I am able to use the skills I have learned over the years to help US Masters manage their excess funds when things aren't so good, the portfolio will get them through tough times.
