THE MOST TREASURED THING I OWN

An outdoor cedar sauna I built from a kit. Amazing how relaxing it is. Like cardiovascular exercise without the effort.

ONE PIECE OF ADVICE

Uncertainty is opportunity.

HOBBIES

Most people know me as a dedicated outdoorsman because of how much time I spend outside! I am fully committed to exploring the expansive backyard we have here in the PNW through hiking, trail running, and training for marathons. I am thankful to have an amazing wife, Elizabeth, and awesome daughter, Olivia, who support and join me on some of my adventures. We’ve made some of our favorite family memories on road trips where we camp and hike.
