Born and raised in Southern California where I attended elementary, secondary, undergrad college and graduate college. Worked my way through college working as a grocery clerk. Was drafted into the U.S. Army between undergrad and grad school. Married with four adult children and seven grandchildren. Served on many boards and commissions in my professional and personal life, most recently as vice chair of the Sedona Planning and Zoning Commission in Arizona and Treasurer of the neighborhood Homeowner's Association in Central Oregon.
Recreational activities include golfing three days a week, weather permitting, mountain bike riding, fishing and hiking. Have traveled since I retired from my day job to Germany/Austria/Switzerland, Ireland, Alaska (only seems like a foreign country!), Argentina and Uruguay. Virus put a damper on international travels planned to New Zealand and Norway.
