I'm pretty laid back but like to get up and go do lots of things. I enjoy working out and working in (on the house and the kids homework). I typically take on more than I can ever finish but I'm trying to change that and finish all that I start. I recently returned to local bicycle racing and made the podium at the State Championships as part of that change. I was born and raised in Washington to British immigrants, so I have a sarcastic wit and very dry sense of humor. I love kids and their sense of immortality. I love to teach, coach and lead people especially little people to experience new realities in the world and in their own minds. I work to protect the environment in the Puget Sound and like to Scuba Dive here and in the tropics when the budget cooperates. I truly live the saying "if they don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy." I love dogs but not cats, I love horses but I'm allergic, I love fish and eat them regularly!
