What I like to do outside of work:

Having fun with our kids and playing with our dogs, barbecuing, snorkeling, hiking in the McDowell Mountains and thinking about preserving old buildings.

Something else I think you should know about me:

I believe being happy and feeling good are choices we make.  I also believe that there are no accidents or coincidences- everything happens for a reason and people and things just show up on time exactly when they are supposed to.
