What you don’t know about me
– My family moved to Hawaii when I was a teenager (Oahu) and I became a salt water junky there. I spent every moment possible at Makapuu and Hanauma Bay boogie boarding, snorkeling, and surfing.
What might surprise you about me
– When I was 9 years old, I was jumping off 40m ski hill jumps in Leavenworth, Washington. I wanted to be in the Olympics as a ski jumper, but a move to Idaho put an end to that dream. When in Hawaii, a friend and I used to drop into an underwater lava cavern and swim into the channel … took about 65seconds to emerge from the underwater cave – it was a rush!
– Dr. Pepper and Cheetos … my lunch staple in high school is still my guilty pleasure, LOL.
Favorite music genre
– Christian rock, wooden music (ie. Eagles, America, etc.), old time rock like Led Zeppelin.
Favorite book or author
– Pretty much anything by Max Lucado, but “In the Grip of Grace” is one of my faves.
– To participate in: hockey, boating and water-skiing, snow-skiing, camping, mountain biking, dirt biking, scuba diving, any type of travel … spoiler alert: I’ve slowed down a lot, so now I do a lot more spectating of MLB Giants, SJ Sharks, Golden State Warriors and 49ers. I also really love to watch the Olympics, especially the winter games.
Biggest personal challenge
– For a person who was pretty dang skinny into his 40’s, weight gain has finally caught up to me. I really need to do more of the above and less spectating of the above. Sigh.
What would be your career if you didn’t choose this one?
– Professional musician, songwriter, performer, and recording artist (I don’t ask for much do I? LOL).
Favorite thing about working at Filice
– I love what I do, and I love the people I work with. The team environment is amazing and everyone feels like family.
On your bucket list
– Top two of my 100 plus items … 1) Take 2 years off and travel the US and Canada, 2) Not sure I still have the chops to pull it off, but I was never able to go helicopter skiing in Banff – I would still go for it if given the opportunity.
