When you are not at the office you can often be found doing what? In the dead of winter, I love hiking the local sections of the Appalachian Trail. A solo hike with mile after mile of a frozen mountain stream in a pristine snowfall is sublime. The only company? Little blue Junco snowbirds.

For what in life do you feel most grateful? I feel most grateful to have been blessed with the best mother and father for which anyone could possibly ask.

What is something others may be surprised to learn about you? I enjoy writing fiction and oil painting.
