Being in the outdoors gives me a chance to connect with those around me. Some of my best friendships have been molded in the outdoors. Now, as a father of two, I hope to give my kids a passion for the outdoors. Adventure racing, paddling, backpacking, skiing, and SCUBA diving are just a few of the activities that occupy most of my free time.

Favorite trip: I really appreciate any trips on the lower Chippewa in our backyard & the wilderness of Canada. Every time I hear the EAC phone ring (Sound of the Loon!!!) I think of some special places in Ontario, Canada. Don’t tell anyone!! Sometimes I let the phone ring TWICE just to hear that special call!!

I have really enjoyed my twenty six plus years working in the EAC. What a fantastic job!! I have especially enjoyed being around such terrific students & watching the program grow. It has been especially rewarding to know that many of our student employees are contemplating careers in the outdoor recreation/environmental education field. Each student in their own special way is gifted with such unique talents. There is still much work to do. I still arrive in the shop each day challenged by the tremendous possibilities for the program. I hope everyone that reads this note feels a part of the program. You are the persons we strive to serve and we hope to meet you on our journey in the outdoors.
