I am blessed. I'v been happily married since Leap Day in 1984, have two amazing and successful children who are both University of Portland Pilots, and enjoyed successful careers in a several industries.
My interests run to adventure and endurance sports. I earned by SCUBA certification at age 19, and Pam and I were active skydivers for over 20 years.
Now we are passionate (obsessed?) with triathlon. My kids were both cross-country and long-distance track atheletes, and Pam has been a runner her entire adult life. I am a late-comer to endurance sports, taking up triathlon 5 years ago.
Giving back is a big part of my life. I am a Rotarian, and a board member of several non-profits ranging from community service grants to economic development to the public schools in my community. For our entire married life, Pam and I have contributed financially to our church and variety of charities in community and international service, as well as medical research.
A big passion is the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund, in memory of Pam's mom who passed away from the disease. In fact, OCRF is the reason we are triathletes. Visit my IM4OCRF fund-raising page to learn the whole story!
Whether you view from the standpoint of faith, personal relationships, business, or physics of the universe, I believe it comes down to one thing: What does around comes around.
