Cathedral musician, hiker, backpacker, road cyclist, husband, grandpa, dad, and coffee/wine/beer drinker (though not all at once).

Favorite places to hike are the High Sierra, Southern Cascades, and Trinity Alps, and have begun to explore the Pacific Northwest. Climbed Kilimanjaro via the Western Breach in 2004, and thru-hiked the High Sierra Trail in 2010.
