I love adventure, but also enjoy quiet contemplation. I spend a lot of time with my family and volunteering with my church and development engineering project design in Africa. I feel like I have been given so much in life and need to pass on the knowledge and skills I have to the less fortunate. Development work will always be an important part of my life. Alaska is a beautiful place and one of the best playgrounds in the world. I love rafting, hiking, fishing, working in my yard, exploring and enjoying the sunshine.
