In my spare time, after work and family, I’m usually involved in a creative pursuit such as painting, photography, gardening, cooking, and home renovation.  I bike to Brown on the East Bay Bike Path when possible, cross-country ski, and like to be outdoors. I have bike toured many places in the world including France, England, Scotland, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, British Columbia, Alaska, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, and Hawaii among others. I play guitar and am learning electric bass so I can play jazz with my sons who play piano and saxophone.
