On a personal note, I am a native of Portland. I have traveled all over the world for work/pleasure but still find the great Northwest a wonderful place to live.  I embrace the luxury of having so many metropolitan and natural options within hours of my doorstep.  I enjoy remodeling my home, traveling, playing competitive billiards and maintaining a balanced life.  To keep my health in balance I have been part of the Cross Fit community for three years.  I am blessed to have an amazing wife and son who accept my crazy schedule.
