Outside of work, my two biggest hobbies are hiking and mountain biking. I picked up both interests while living in Mammoth, but I have branched out and hike and bike in other areas now as well. I have not been able to get into backpacking, so I have to limit myself to a maximum of 20 miles roundtrip for a day. I occasionally snowshoe in the winter. I am also an aviation geek and will eventually find a photo to represent that.
During the summer, you can usually find me riding my bike at the Mammoth Mountain Bike Park or on other Eastern Sierra trails.

|After a minor crash.||The best part of hiking is wildlife. Lillium parvus, Eastern Sierra tiger lily.|
|Rainbow Falls with an actual rainbow.||Lots of connections with the Pacific Crest Trail and John Muir Trails.|
|Scotland is one of my two favorite places on Earth. This is the countryside just outside Craigievar Castle, Aberdeenshire.||Hawaii is the other, any island really. This is Waimea Beach Park on Oahu. Someday we will travel again.|
